Our handmade terracotta tiles emanate from Spain, not far inland from the city of Valencia amongst the orange groves for which that area is famous. The production is third generation, and little has changed over time – the only change being that the clay is now air-dried under polytunnels in case of storms. These tiles will be the perfect addition to your home due to their smooth, pastel appearance, enhancing the feeling of luxury and giving your home the Spanish vibe.

How Are Our Terracotta Tiles Made?

The clay is first slapped into moulds, then adjusted and smoothed out by hand. The terracotta tiles are then immediately turned out of the moulds and left to bake in the hot Spanish sun until they are ready to be placed in the kiln. Once the terracotta tiles are dry enough to bake, an old brick tunnel kiln is then filled to the brim, and small fires are lit inside. The tunnel is then bricked up, and olive stones are fed through ventilation shafts at the top of the tunnel to stoke the fires. A very distinctive smell.

The kiln is heated to 1050 centigrade, at which point the moulded clay becomes a fired terracotta tile. The kiln then takes a few days to cool, and in fact, the whole firing process from bricking up to opening lasts approximately 4 days. Once completed, the terracotta tiles are removed and checked for imperfections. During the firing process, different parts of the kiln reach different temperatures – this gives the tiles different shades of colour.

The terracotta tiles near the kiln’s centre have a deeper colour, and the ones from the periphery are lighter. Once fully cooled, the tiles are palletised and ready for sale within Spain or exported to wherever they are required. We believe these tiles are beautiful once laid and contain years of history and craftsmanship that have been obtained through years of careful manufacturing.
