The solid tiles here are just a fraction of what we carry starting at $1.80 for 4" pieces.
Our collection of Puebla tiles, 2” to 8”, are available only through our Berkeley, California store. The tiles below are just examples of the extensive selections we offer. They are handcrafted in a family workshop in Puebla, Mexico, the city often referred to as the cradle of Talavera. Spanish missionaries exported the Talavera art form from the Spanish town of Talavera de la Reina (hence the name) to establish it in Puebla, Mexico, in the18th century. Puebla tiles reflect the original historic ceramic designs influenced by the Moorish excursions into Spain.
By purchasing handmade tile customers should be aware of the following:
All tiles are made by hand and can be slightly irregular in size; it is often the case that no two pieces are exactly alike. As a result of our tiles being hand made, Talavera Ceramics & Tile cannot be responsible for subtle variations in color, design, and size. We so advise because there are no refunds on special orders. Not all decorative tiles can be used for horizontal application (floors) or in freezing temperatures. Our staff or your tile installer can advise on these applications.
