Searching for discontinued tile

We are preparing to have our downstairs guest bathroom redone. I am in a desperate search for a DISCONTINUED TILE that we used previously in this bathroom/ hall/ mudroom. We do have the original box and 6 tiles left. The tile is:
emil Ceramica Serie ASTRA

I would greatly appreciate learning where to locate and how I go about purchasing this tile for our project!
Thanks very much!

Have you tried contacting the company to see if they might have a pallet back in storage or in an old warehouse somewhere... They might have just what you need.

Have you contacted the store from which you bought the tile originally? I did this once and the manager of the department literally called every other store the company owned to look for it for me.

I didn't find it still listed on their website but it certainly wouldn't hurt to check with them.

Contact the manufacture and get the names of distributors/retailers that had the tile and start calling them.

Excellent lessons learned, buy an extra box of material you just never know when it will come in handy!

I will try a Google search using the terms "distributors/retailers" with the name of the time/manufacturer! Thanks!

Was that Tile already discontinued at the time you originally installed it ?

How long ago was that ?

It may by now be really discontinued.

I believe those are made in Spain(I could be wrong). About all you can do is go back to where they were bought and see if the store will have the distributor look. Some other store might have some left over. If another store has some, they will probably be eager to get rid of them.

brand new tile/ 15 years ago. I stopped at a tile warehouse store today. He explained that it is most unlikely to locate tiles/ 15 years ago. He suggested/ as I picked out a 30" vanity on legs... to use the six tiles that I have in front... as they will be seen... and use a complementary tile pattern for the underneath where the tiles will never be viewed..
