Spanish Handmade 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.
Our reclaimed terracotta tiles are principally sourced from the Loire and Anjou areas of France and offer what many would consider a more appropriate traditional floor for older properties than limestone tiles.The Parrefeuille tiles are from the south of France offer a paler alternative to the classic earthy colours from the north.
