Designing with Hand Painted Tile
Our hand painted Talavera tile pairs extremely well with terra cotta tile, which is another traditional Mexican material. You can use single Talavera tiles to create a checkerboard pattern on a wall or floor, or use a group of them to mimic the look of an area rug or a mural. 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.
