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 achieve 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.
