Terracotta - Torquemada

These tiles are produced by one of the traditional tile makers of Spain, the only company left in Europe fully maintaining the tile making techniques introduced to Spain by the Moors.

The colour and patina of Torquemada is achieved by the firing process using three different types of wood, each emitting a different amount of flame and smoke. No gas fired tile, however handmade, can begin to acheive these tones and textures, let alone any machine made product

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.
