Terracotta tiles have been used in homes for many years due to their durability, as well as the warm and rustic feel they bring to any room. Our Saltillo Terracotta tiles come directly from Saltillo, Mexico, where they are lovingly handmade. Each tile is dried naturally under the Mexican sun and then fired in a kiln at a very high temperature to create a durable, long-lasting, quality tile.
Each terracotta tile features a combination of burnt oranges, rich reds and yellow hues, and no two tiles are exactly the same – giving them a wonderfully rustic and handmade look. The tiles are unglazed and will require sealing to preserve their beauty and protect them from stains and damages.
To seal terracotta tiles you will need to use boiled linseed oil and a sealant – you can order the handy LTP Terracotta Seal and Clean Pack online which contains everything you need to protect and maintain your terracotta tiles – including tools!4
