Saltillo Rectangular Floor Tile
A rectangle Saltillo floor tile will give a nice border to larger square tiles as shown or added to some 2 inch Talavera tiles for a decorative design. 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.

This is a solid piece of clay, shaped rectangular. Each piece covers about 32 sq in. Using a 1/2" grout an average of 39 sq in will be covered with one piece, this is a rough estimate. To calculate more accurately how many pieces you will need, just multiply your square footage by 144 and divide by 39; that will give you the answer.
