The production of ceramics in Znojmo, southeastern Czech Republic, started in the 19th century, thus regarded as the oldest in continental Europe. Back then, the figural and decorative elements produced were a much-celebrated testament to the remarkable skills of the local craftsmen. Shortly after 1920, the very same specialists pioneered again in the continent by making kiln-fired washbasins, bathtubs and sinks. To date, JIKA creations are manufactured in two Czech factories, located in the towns of Bechyně and long-standing Znojmo.
With the 1991 acquisition by with the Swiss company LAUFEN Bathrooms, technical and operational upgrades were ignited and sanitary ceramics product lines witnessed remarkable expansion. A combination of in-house design, natural materials and state-of-art technologies for processes define JIKA products in a very genuine way, as the internationally considered ISO 9001 quality certification earned proofs.

JIKA is the opportunity to afford a complete Bathroom that couples singular European legacy in design with contemporary technology. High quality, perfect functionality and a comprehensive solution portfolio across price ranges round up our brand’s proposal.
As a direct result of this and further technological implementations, sanitary ceramics by JIKA boast noticeable benefits at usage. Specifically, cleaning easiness, along perfectly glazed surfaces of inner rings and siphon traps mean minimal dirt deposition. Resistance to marked thermal variation, scratching, and color stability despite the passing of time come up among the aesthetic pros. In a breakthrough, our recently marketed surface treatment JIKA perla allows exceptional hygiene with its water repellent features, equaling dirt and scale-free external surfaces on the ceramic pieces.
