Mexican Terracotta

 

Terracotta tiles are a traditional, authentic flooring product that possess a warmth, charm and character that is often missing from more contemporary materials. In the middle ages terracotta was often produced 'on site', but now the best traditional kilns are in Spain and Mexico. Hand-made terracotta tiles are formed by pressing raw clay into molds:this produces a durable but low density tile. Compared with denser alternatives terracotta tiles act as an excellent insulator underfoot, almost eliminating the need for assistance from under-floor heating.

Mexican Terracotta is available with its own proprietory sealers but we normally recommend linseed oil and wax on our Spanish Terracotta. Liquid waxes are available for ongoing maintenance. More information on preparing and sealing terracotta is available on the Technical Advice page.  

Please note that we are more than happy to supply small orders for these tiles to match HISTORIC ORDERS subject to appropriate carriage charges.Orders over 1-2m2 may well have to travel by pallet-line haulier. Clay tiles are fragile and couriered orders require tiles to be unpacked and re-wrapped.Delivery dates will be given once the order has been packed.May we respectfully remind customers that current stock will almost certainly vary by way of tone, shade, texture and calibration relative to any tiles that may have been purchased in the past.
