Tenampa tiles are NOT frost resistant, they should not be used on outdoor installations with potential freezing temperatures.
Our Tenampa Stoneware Mexican handcrafted tile draws its inspiration from nature and the Mexican Northwest and the American Southwest. The tiles are made from a blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals to produce a very dense body, which makes them highly resistant to moisture, staining, and wear. The surface is glazed and painted by hand with color pigments. The tiles are fired in kilns making the glaze permanently fused to the body (bisque) to form a finish product. Once the process to create the tiles is complete the tiles become alive and vibrant. They have a rustic, warm, and timeless appeal. You can use these tiles to create a custom design that blends perfectly with your Southwest style interior design.

We absolutely love the design of this tile! The 3D effect enhances its appeal. We plan to use this in a kitchen backsplash along with rusty red roman cotta tiles.
