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.

Great product; very responsive service

It was so helpful to be able to change an order last second over the phone. Shipping was fast and tile were snug and beautiful!



Happy with purchase

Exactly as described. Used with Guadalajara tile and color matched perfectly. Happy with this purchase.



Beautifully made product

This is my second kitchen using these tiles. They are way more refined than other pencil edge tile on the market. Regardless of where or what field tile you use these tiles finish a edge off beautifully. The color is consistent and not too ‘yellowy’ like some edgings are in antique white. Quick response and nicely packed. Great company.



Mixed feelings

This is a nicely finished product. It's height is 3/4" (which, of course, we knew beforehand from the item description) vs. the 1/4" thichness of the field tile it is intended to border. The 1/2" elevation above the field tile is visually a bit too prominent and dramatic. We will attempt to reduce it to half height using the wet saw giving it less width and a more acceptable 1/8" elevation above the field. If we are unsuccessful, we'll just go with a grouted edge. Since we're doing a diagonal mount of the field tile, bullnose isn't an option.




Just what I needed to make the kitchen a finished product. Thank you.
