Product details

The thirty pieces set of the tiles (6 designs, 5 tiles of each design) measuring 10 cm x 10 cm will allow for covering a square metre of the surface. The tiles are abrasion-resistant and even with deeper scratches the pattern is still visible because the colours are incorporated in the glaze. Each tile is first covered with an undercoat – brown colour, and then each colour is laid separately according to the design. After burning, the tiles obtain their final colours as well as high resistance.

Hand painted Talavera type tiles are made in a traditional technique in a place called Dolores Hidalgo in the region of Guanajuato in Mexico. The tiles of Talavera type also known as Majolica, or  simply Azulejos from Spanish, are extremely popular not only in Mexico, but in the whole world, thanks to their unusual character, design and warm colours of the South. Painting the tiles by hand as well as the essence of the technique itself make individual colours differ in shade ( for instance yellow may have a tone of a light shade or come up to almost orange), the rims are not always of an ideal shape, thanks to which they acquire rustic character and originality. Each tile is unique!

We recommend three interesting films presenting the whole process of producing the tiles and laying colours and designs: Production of hand painted tiles. We also encourage you to have a look at the photo gallery of Mexican interiors as well as the photo gallery of Mexican tiled stairs.
