Much of the beauty and appeal of handcrafted tile resides in those slight variations in size, color, design, and texture that reveal each tile as a unique work of art. The skilled artisans who create these extraordinary tiles in the colonial region of Puebla, Mexico, are working in a tradition that goes back centuries. These tiles have a personality and warmth that is simply lacking in machine-made tiles. By purchasing these tiles, you join us in helping to preserve this rich heritage.

Among the hundreds of Mexican studios working today in the Talavera tradition, none are producing finer or more beautiful tiles than these. These handcrafted tiles are the creations of a small, family-run workshop, whose artisans represent several generations of dedication to the craft.


Scrupulously adhering to traditional methods, they use only the finest materials. The clays are meticulously selected, mixed, cured, formed, and fired in a time-consuming process that ensures durability. The glazes are made entirely from traditional mineral-based sources. No modern chemical-based colors are used. A second firing at 1100ºC secures a permanent bond between ceramic and glaze.
