About

Modular clay tiles to make green walls in cities more affordable and efficient 

Epiclay’s mission is to make urban living greener by introducing easy to build and modular green wall systems into architectural environments of any kind. The system can be easily built on any facade or indoor walls, and requires very little maintenance.
Inspired by the use of clay in ancestral horticultural techniques, Epiclay relies on the absorbent and moisture wicking quality of unglazed clay for the the cultivation of epiphytic plants, thus creating a new and more efficient type of vertical garden.
