8 Inch Clay Mexican Floor Tile
Mexican floor tile comes from the Northern Mexican region of Saltillo, Coahuila. Because of the particular clay available in the region, different colors and hues are created on each clay tile. Hand-pressed and wood-fired, this clay tile is very popular in Spanish style homes.
Color changes are particularly notorious from lot to lot, because of the natural variations in clay and the mixtures used in their creation. If you are really concerned about color variation, we recommend you to order the whole project at once. Handmade Saltillo tile is also available in all kinds of neutral colors. Traditional terra-cotta is the most common on the market. If you are interested in a neutral custom made Saltillo floor tile, contact us for products. There is a usual lead time of 10 weeks for most custom colors.

This is a solid square piece of clay. Each side measures 8" covering about 64 sq in. Using a 1/2" grout an average of 72 sq in will be covered with this piece. To compute how many of these tiles you need to cover a given area, you will need to round up each side of your area to 8". In a room 10'x10' you will need 120"/8" = 15 pieces per side, and 15 rows, giving you a total of 15x15 = 225 tiles total to cover the full room.
