Saltillo Square 5" Floor Tile
A square Saltillo floor tile in a 5 inch piece is shown in multiple pieces along with a 4 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 California or 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. Not designed for outside freezing temperatures.
