Talavera tiles are NOT frost resistant, they should not be used on outdoor installations with potential freezing temperatures.
Mexico is world reknown for its skillful artisans in a wide variety of fields. Mexican writer Alberto Ruy Sanchez Lacy called Mexican tile a "chosen skin". Tiles have embellished numerous public and private spaces thoughout Mexico. A glimpse anywhere in Mexico, particularly in the central states, shows the widespread use of talavera tiles decorating a broad range of spaces from kitchens, fountains, facades, interiors of luxurious hacienda homes to churches. It is through traditional artifacts, such as handcrafted tiles, that one can perceive an artisan’s sensibility, and creativity. Handcrafted ceramic tile is a rooted cultural heritage in Mexico, since its practice of making it began in the late sixteen century, around 1570 and 1573. Mexican ceramic tiles have actively played a distinguished role as an important utilitarian and decorative element in Mexican architecture.
Mexican tile is functional, beautiful, and practical, it provides a long lasting wall or surface that is easy to care and maintain. You can install Mexican tiles in virtually any area you want to enjoy their warm and beauty.The tiles are made from clay dug out of the ground and fired to a temperature at which the clay undergoes chemical changes and becomes permanently hard. Then the tile is glazed and decorated by hand, and fired once again to give it its final and lively finish. Its physical characteristics make Mexican tiles particularly attractive and distinctive. Mexican tiles are concave (not perfectly flat). They are characterized as unique, irregular, functional, and expressive.

thank you so much , the order arrived in great shape !!!
We needed to match some cobalt blue Talavera tiles in the bathroom and these are a perfect match. They arrived a day after I ordered and were packed perfectly. We have had the pleasure of visiting your showroom and were very impressed by your selection and customer service. I wish we had a bigger home so we could use your tiles throughout. Thank you!
All arrived in good shape, promptly, and the colors are as expected. They should work well for my project. Very attractive tiles. Thank you.
THANKS to you all. The customer service from your company over the past three years has been stellar.
The customer service was very helpful. We were concerned on the color matching between the tiles and they helped up. The matching between the blues on the different designs was perfect. Thank you
Nice rich color blue though it doesn't match the ones I got at Home Depot in regards to color or thickness. I bought corners and edges too. They were extremely expensive. Good packaging
Arrived today. The tile is beautiful and thank you especially for the excellent packing job.
The recent order of the tiles 1x1 arrived quickly and packaged carefully, as always. The tiles themselves were of the same high quality I've come to expect with Tierra y Fuego. Having ordered from you folks many times before, your tiles are beautiful - great selection and care taken with each order placed.
Excellent efficient service.
