MADE exclusively IN Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.
Terracotta Saltillo tiles are composed of all-natural clay, formed and finished entirely by hand.
COPING | A stair coping is a piece of material that covers the edge of a step to provide a rounded, finished and decorative look. Coping can be cut down to create a more decorative look or to transition into a different shape of tile.
BULLNOSE | Bullnose is a type of trim that has one or more rounded edges. It is often used as a finishing piece for tiled surfaces, such as walls, countertops, and backsplashes. The rounded edge creates a smooth transition and helps to avoid sharp edges or corners. It can also be used to create a decorative edge or border. Another common use, given the thickness of terracotta, is as a transition from one flooring to another.
MITER CUT | With miter cuts, you can conveniently create 45-degree angles for corners, niches, and edges, or cut down and miter standard pieces to a create custom trim.
EXPOSED EDGE | Embrace the natural elements and leave the edge unfinished
We recommend ordering both field tiles and corresponding trim pieces together to minimize batch variation.
V3 MODERATE VARIATION: Notable variations in texture and color within the same batch of tile make for an attractive, handcrafted aesthetic
SMOOTH: Smooth tile texture refers to a more uniform and even texture without any major bumps or ridges, although smooth terracotta will show some surface texture.
ANTIQUE: "Distressed" tile texture refers to a surface pattern on a tile that has been deliberately aged or weathered to create a worn-out appearance.
SHEEN | SEALER
GLOSS: Our gloss sealed Saltillo tile is coated creating a shiny finish. This is the most traditional, and durable Saltillo sealer option.
SATIN: Satin sealer offers a comparable level of protection as our gloss seal, making it ideal for high traffic and wet areas.
MATTE: Matte sealer offers a protection from water absorption. Exposure to heavy moisture and/or foot traffic may lead to discoloration, darkening, and staining over time.

Saltillo tile is renowned for its natural variation in color, sheen, and texture — this contributes to its characteristically unique and authentic charm. Before installation, blend the tiles together and remember: sealing is a critical step when installing Saltillo tile.
Terracotta tile can be installed in a variety of areas. For climates with freezing weather and exterior, wet area installations, proper installation such as specialized waterproofing (water barrier underlayment), a topcoat sealer, and maintenance are required.*
