A modern interpretation of the iconic Bateau-style bath, Drummonds Tweed Tub synthesizes the best qualities of classic cast iron tubs into a diminutive profile—ideal for smaller spaces.
First popularized in the 19th. Century, Bateau (“boat” in French) bathtubs were known for the characteristic rolled top, which evokes the bow of a ship. The tubs were supremely functional—“flat on the floor for stability and high-sided for deep bathing.” And the cast iron material performed better than previous tubs made of nickel and copper, especially in regards to heat retention.
Tweed exemplifies the beauty of bateau: a timeless tub with a versatile aesthetic, it’s also ultra-comfortable for long, luxurious soaks.
Like all Drummonds cast-iron tubs, Tweed features a dry-fit vitreous enamel that’s fused with the cast iron for high durability. Multiple finishes are available, including raw iron, polished iron, a primed exterior that’s ready for paint, and a spray painted matte or gloss exterior in solid colors or patterned designs.
