Mission Tile West opened in 1984, and the first kind of tile we offered was handmade Mexican tile from the workshop of a family member. As the company matured, we added many other kinds of tile to our inventory, but we continued selling hand painted Mexican tile. For example, we have Talavera tile. This kind of hand painted tile Sierra Madre CA represents one of Mexico’s finest ceramic traditions and is a fantastic way to add personality to any property. You can use this hand-painted tile Sierra Madre CA for:
- Shower stalls
- Tub surrounds
- Pool surrounds
- Accent pieces
Benefits of Hand Painted Tile
Like factory tile, hand painted tile Sierra Madre CA offers a cool, easy-to-clean, durable surface that will last longer than carpet and wear better than wood. Hand painted tile features small variations from tile to tile, which helps prevent your designs from being too perfectly repetitive.
Designing with Hand Painted Tile
The applications for hand painted Talavera tile are nearly endless. You might decide to tie your kitchen walls and floor together by using a border of Talavera tile around the back of the backsplash as well as peppering Talavera tiles at certain intersections of otherwise plain floor tile. While blue and white are the traditional colors for this style of hand painted tile, our line of Talavera tile also includes yellow, red, green, and black so you can pair it with more color schemes. We offer solid tiles as well as decorated tiles featuring flowers, birds, geometric patterns, and other traditional motifs.
