What is Spanish Tile?

Traditional Spanish tile is centuries old and skillfully created by trained artisans. When colonists first came to the New World, they built structures that combined the Baroque ornamentation from the Old World with basic shapes and construction to blend the two styles for their new home. This striking combination is known as Spanish Colonial, which continues to be a beloved part of historical and new builds alike. The classic characteristics of Spanish colonial tile includes unique borders and corners, large decorative designs, filigree accents, and both earthy tones and bright colors. Common design elements inspired by the Spanish colonial movement include the clay tile roofs typically seen on homes in sunny states, and the decorative tile often used on floors, trim, porches and balconies, and inside bathrooms.

The result is a product that cannot easily fade or chip because the design is inlaid into the tile itself and is not painted on the surface.

Each tile you receive in your order is one of a kind and displays the intricate differences only a handmade product can deliver.
