Terracotta Santa Rufina

Paris Ceramics had been searching for a readily available alternative to antique terracotta floors and a lengthy process of research and experimentation culminated in this floor called Santa Rufina.

Paris Ceramics sources its antique terracotta tiles from the south and west of France.

Salvaged from period buildings, the tiles are at least 150 years old and were virtually all fired in wood burning kilns giving them their varied colour and less uniform texture than tiles fired in gas or coal fired kilns.........giving them the colour and patina of tiles which have been in place for centuries.

Moulded by hand, which gives them their interesting texture, the tiles reflect the colour of terracotta native to their region; from the yellows of Bordeaux to the warm pinks of the south west - an unmistakeable signature of provence.

More about Terracotta:

Terracotta tiles are a traditional, authentic flooring product that possess a warmth, charm and character that is often missing from more contemporary materials.

In the middle ages terracotta was often produced 'on site'. Hand-made terracotta tiles are formed by pressing raw clay into molds: this produces a durable but low density tile.
