About Us
Human artistry.
Enduring craftsmanship.
Exceptional service.

 

The history of human connection with natural stone is written deep in ancient quarries, originally excavated by the Romans and worked continuously over the millennia. Although the art of quarrying stone has changed dramatically since those early days, what has remained constant is the human artistry involved.

Walker Zanger has been engaged in this tradition for more than 60 years, offering our clients prized marble and stone from quarries throughout the world, each individually selected and evaluated by our experienced stone masters.

This human connection is the bedrock of our company: the relationships with families who have worked the quarries for generations, the fathers and sons who hand down the intricate knowledge required to select and judge stone, who work each day in the quarries and block yards, hand selecting the perfect block, the most beautiful slab, the finest tiles. This emphasis on quality and relationships has guided our family business and become the touchstone for Walker Zanger's growth as the world's leading luxury brand in the stone and tile industry.

Our company is rooted not only in these ancient quarries of Europe, but also in the enduring crafts still practiced around the world today. Craftsmen in the Central Mexican highlands still press and finish each terracotta tile by hand, Tunisian artisans continue in the Roman tradition of hand-fitted mosaics, and Italian masters etch designs into solid stone, then individually gild them with gold and silver leaf. Taking inspiration from these traditional art forms as well from historic architecture and decorative arts, our designers create exclusive collections available only through Walker Zanger. 

From one pair of hands to the next, each product featured in our catalog is carefully shepherded from a quarry in France, a ceramic studio in Morocco, or a mosaic workshop in Italy to its final destination — the residence or business that inspires you, shelters you, and expresses your deepest wishes for a space of beauty and refinement. Whether your project is a simple bathroom remodel, a dream vacation home, or a chic boutique hotel, Walker Zanger delivers the finest material the world of stone and tile has to offer. We pride ourselves on treating every client with courtesy and professionalism, and offer products that will provide a lifetime of value and pleasure.
