The timeless appeal of terra cotta tiles make it as popular today as in centuries past. These tiles can be used in kitchen backsplashes, counters, floors, and walls; and when installed correctly terra cotta tiles should wear beautifully for the life of the house.
These tiles are intentionally antiqued, expect many imperfections, chips, blisters, voids, etc. as part of the antiquing process.
Each tile is individually hand painted and fired 3 times in the factory, no two tiles will be alike, there will be variation with each piece. This is intentional and is what makes these tiles unique. If you order a sample, keep these variations in mind.
Some tiles marked (texture) have a more enhanced surface texture and thickness than the other tile sizes. Please keep this in mind if you wish to mix and match different sizes of tile in your design.
