"Tumbled bricks are simply bricks that have been put into a tumbling machine. As it turns, the bricks roll around and bang against each other and off the walls of the machine; this deforms their edges and make dents and marks on their surfaces to make them look old and weathered. The total opposite of straight cut bricks that look brand new with perfect Ninety degree angles."
