L.A. Tile is unique from all other tile manufacturers and importers in that we have combined the ancient tradition of Talavera tile decoration with European ceramic technology in ways that respond to the aesthetic and installation demands of most of North America and Europe. No other Talavera tile has undergone the laboratory tests that ours have to assure its ability for installation in all climates, and for resistance to pool chemicals. No other Mexican tile has been designed to complement the subtle earth toned ceramics and stone commonly used throughout homes in the US. In addition, no other Latin ceramic enterprise offers a compliment of molding and trim products, in both traditional clay and all weather porcelain, to meet your designer’s demands for both exterior and interior tile installations.
Tiles are kept in stock in the San Francisco Bay Area. Designs that are otherwise available in the traditional clay body can be special ordered upon request. Talavera tiles have many creators among Mexican tile companies, but only L. A. Tile offers both artistic handcrafted porcelain tile and traditional clay body ceramic tile for use in all climates and all installations.
Porcelain pool tile that is tested to be frost resistant or for stair riser accent tile, outdoor kitchen tile decoration, retaining wall tile or for use in fountains are possible with our unique exterior tile creations. Similarly it can be used as decorative tile for kitchen backsplashes, bathroom sink and tile, and as floor tile accents. L. A. Tiles' traditional ceramic clay body for use indoors or in mild climates, are made of handcrafted tile bodies for a more rustic look. Our talavera tile designs are almost entirely uniquely ours. L. A. Tiles' Catalina tile line has been created to complement as accent tile, patios of natural stone, terra cotta and earth toned ceramics, bringing a new direction to the Mexican talavera tile tradition.
