For those of you familiar with Talavera tile, you understand
the unique craftsmanship and artistic flair that is involved with the creation
of this beautiful handmade tile.
Talavera tile gets its name from a small village in Spain called
Talavera de la Reina where it took root during the 15th century. However, many
of the styles and patterns can be traced back to the Arab culture around the
8th century. In turn, after the Spanish colonization of Mexico, the new ceramic
was introduced and the Mexican artisans embraced it.
The name “Talavera” is now the definitive meaning of the unique tile and ceramic
patterns and designs handed down generations ago from these skilled craftsmen.
Presently, there are a number of family-run studios in central Mexico where
Talavera tile is carefully and skillfully handcrafted and available to you through
