How It's Made

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Johan Cruyff Foundation, the Cruyff Foundation and Royal Delft collaborated and introduce a unique series of Delft Blue tiles. Several famous quotes by Johan Cruyff and his signature are placed on these special tiles.

The handwriting of the painters of Royal Delft was used for the iconic statements by Johan Cruijff on the tiles was used for the iconic statements by Johan Cruijff on the tiles

The handwriting was digitized and then a design was made especially for the Cruyff Foundation. The ox heads in the corners of the tile have been specially adapted and designed based on the logo of the Cruyff Foundation. Johan Cruijff’s signature has also been added

The complete design is placed on the tiles via the transfer technique by an employee of the factory in Delft

Then the tiles are fired in one of the ovens of Royal Delft

After the tiles came out of the oven, they are ready to be carefully packed and sent.
