    COLOR

    "TERRATONES"

    Embrace a variation of hues from blush pink to golden peach to sunny yellow, with an array of variation in every batch. Colors differ from piece to piece. Natural color variations emerge during the firing process, which creates a range of colors that cannot be controlled.

    The final color result is influenced by the sealer among natural elements. The size and shape of the pieces can influence the degree of color variation, with larger pieces showcasing more diversity compared to smaller ones.

    TEXTURE

    NATURAL VARIATIONS

    Look for unique surface variations and textures, as these are telltale signs of genuine handmade tiles. These beautiful characteristics are exclusive to authentic tiles, like ours.

    It is normal to find natural indentations, bumps, divots, scuffs, and variations on the surface. Excess clay or minor chips may be present on the surface, edges, or back of the tile. Irregular marks or lines that resemble fold marks may be present, all of which are common characteristics of authentic, handmade terracotta tile.

    SHEEN

    MATTE SEALED

    The matte sealed terracotta is pre-sealed during production to protect it from water absorption. Prolonged exposure to heavy moisture and foot traffic may cause discoloration, darkening, and staining over time.

    To avoid this and increase longevity, we highly recommend sealing with our Penetrating Sealant (matte finish) or Ultra-Low VOC Sealant (semi-gloss finish) to protect the tile.

    VARIATION

    V3 MODERATE VARIATION: Notable variations in size (sizing is nominal), texture, flatness and some coloration. Noticeable variations contribute to the handmade authenticity.

    Variation ratings provide a general indication of the range of variation, but batches may differ in more or less consistency. It is not possible to choose a specific high or low range of variation.

    GROUT

    First, figure out what style you’re trying to bring to the room.

    For a more “traditional” installation:

    For a more modern, sleeker look:

    GROUT JOINT

    1/4" to 3/4"

    Narrower joints, generally used on tiles 6" and below, create a more modern aesthetic, while larger joint widths are suited for larger tile sizes creating a traditional look.

    An additional deviation of ± 3/8"in size is considered acceptable for joint straightness and variation of flatness.

    Smaller grout joints may result in variations in the straightness of the grout joint, so we recommend consulting a skilled installation expert to increase the probability of a successful installation.
