Description

Mermaid, fan, fish scale,... so many names for this gorgeous handcrafted tile. We stock it in Aqua Crackle and can make it in all colors.

Abanico Aqua Crackle

We source the Abanico Aqua Crackle responsibly from Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico. In fact, the small town just outside of the historic San Miguel de Allende is one of the strongholds of Talavera clay making. Clay Imports stocks this handmade tile in Austin, Texas.

About Talavera Tile

Clay Imports sources all tiles responsibly from places we appreciate. Needless to say, we visit each international partner and their production facilities regularly. Certainly, Talavera tile is our most traditional tile. It is rich in both history and color and design. With a backstory rooted deep in Colonial Mexican culture, Talavera tiles feature an array of patterns and vibrant colors. For example, Talavera blends characteristics of Islamic art, Spanish tradition, and materials native to central Mexico. Each tile is individually hand cut and painted. As a result, the natural variations and imperfections in each piece add to the uniqueness of Talavera tile.

Visit the Talavera Workshop in Dolores Hidalgo

Traditional Talavera tile making is a fascinating craft. If you want to learn more about the craftsmanship, and rich history of Talavera, don't hesitate to reach out to us. The charming town of Dolores Hidalgo is nestled in Mexico’s central highland and Clay Imports will take you on a tour! Dolores is not only famous for its outstanding handmade ceramics industry but also historically important. Here, Father Hidalgo uttered his famous cry for the independence of Mexico, the "Grito". And if that is not already worth a visit, the enchanting city San Miguel Allende is just around the corner. Check out our YouTube Channel where we feature snippets from last visits.
