Crossing borders and introducing Botswana to beautiful living.

March 2, 2020

Italtile crosses border and introduces Botswana to beautiful living.

In a bold move, Italtile crossed the border into Botswana to seed their unique brand of Beautiful Living in the hearts and minds of Gaborone’s style community. After months of planning, passion and purpose, the impressive new flagship Gaborone showroom is open for business.


Italtile’s Marketing Manager, Nicole Russell, worked tirelessly with new Store Manager Peme Hlomuka. A small team went above and beyond the call of duty to honour the deadline. It was all hands on deck, with sleepless nights all round, and blood, sweat and tears. Peme will tell you, with pride, that everyone rolled up their sleeves: many learnt a few new skills onsite, including grouting and plumbing!

The new Gaborone venture is the 13th Italtile showroom, lucky for some, and certainly for Italtile, as they watch the Beautiful Living message catch fire with a Botswana market looking for luxury Italian and Spanish tiles, baths, sanware, taps, sinks and basins, accessories and finishes.

Over and above an incredible selection of opening specials and what he terms “never-to-be-repeated discounts”, Peme is showcasing the hot new trend of XXL tiles. These are magnificent, large format 1200x2400 porcelain tiles for interior and exterior use, like cement-style Spazio, in normal and slip resistant finishes.


“Our doors haven’t been open for more than a few days, and already we have some top sellers – our well-priced, top quality Bayona and Magnum ranges.”


Italtile Gaborone’s exciting selection of tile ranges includes the exclusive New Decò by Ceramica Sant’Agpoostino; a beautiful remastering of the art of terrazzo (another current trend) with “a little piece of Italy in every tile”. Then, for focus areas in the home, there’s an unrivalled selection of mosaics. Peme also suggests customers check out the amazing anti-slip technology of the 2CM tiles for outdoor areas. And on the topic of outdoor products, he and his team will direct you to their step edge, pool area and pool coping products.

Italtile-style Beautiful Living extends beyond just tiles, into the kitchen, with a range of Smeg sinks and extensive tap selection from Tivoli; and into the bathroom, with luxury Swiss sanware by Laufen, baths by world-renowned Victoria+Albert, imported bathroom accessories, as well as waterwise shower products with Nano Tech technology which carry Italtile’s LiveGreen logo.


But Beautiful Living also means a meaningful and memorable shopping experience, with eye-catching lifestyle displays, exceptional service from super-knowledgeable staff, and outstanding Italian blend coffee. Peme’s team also offers insured delivery services, and by-appointment site visits in the Gabs radius to assist customers with renovation and room remodels.


 Plot 77806, Block 10, A1 Road, Setlhoa, is Gaborone’s new homestyle mecca, easily accessible from the highway, where Italtile’s signature luxury looks await, and Peme Hlomuka and his team of eight design-inspired sales consultants look forward to welcoming Gaborone’s stylistas. As Peme says:


“Tlhatswa matlho – visit Italtile, Gabs. We’ll bring new views and beauty to you, so you’ll see your world through fresh eyes and live beautifully!”
