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.

Excellent service

We have taken our guest bathroom to the studs and are making it into a traditional Mexican bathroom. The talavera white tiles combined with a sink and patterned tiles I previously purchased are coming together nicely. I love the look!! This company has excellent service. My tiles arrived in less than a week. They kept me informed along the way.

Tierra and Fuego were a great company to deal with - answered our questions and sent the tile right away. We love the tile and can't wait to have it on our kitchen backsplash.

All of the tiles are beautiful! This was a "sample" order; I am planning to order more for our kitchen backsplash when we are ready for that project, probably in a few months.

I would be happy to recommend Tierra y Fuego. The tile is exactly as advertised. The order accuracy was perfect. They must have picked and shipped it the same day I ordered because it arrived exactly 7 days after I ordered. The packing was exceptional, not a single cracked or broken tile.
