When Mission Tile West opened its doors in 1984, we offered handcrafted Mexican tile exclusively. After that, we grew to sell tile from more than 200 manufacturers, but we never stopped loving hand painted Mexican tile. For example, we offer Talavera tile. Much like majolica, Talavera tile consists of designs painted over a milky white base. This kind of hand painted tile Alhambra CA harmonizes with many architectural styles found in southern California. Hand painted tile Alhambra CA looks wonderful just about anywhere you use it. You could use it for:
- Shower stalls
- Tub surrounds
- Pool surrounds
- Accent pieces

Designing with Hand Painted Tile
Talavera tile is most frequently used as decorative tile, and it is often paired with terra cotta tile on floors. You can sprinkle small 2×2” hand painted tiles in between your terra cotta pavers on a patio or interior floor, or use larger tiles as a border around a tub or backsplash. Although the most traditional colors for Talavera tile are blue and white, our selection of hand painted tile also includes green, red, yellow, and black. This improves the versatility of the tile because it can match many different decors. You can choose abstract designs or birds or flowers, depending on your tastes.
