Terracotta tiles are a perfect choice for anyone looking to add a touch of Mediterranean charm to their home. At RMS Natural Stone and Ceramics, we supply terracotta tiles made from natural clay; these tiles are durable and low-maintenance, adding a unique rustic appeal.
Why Choose Terracotta Tiles?
Terracotta tiles are a type of ceramic tile made from natural clay that is fired at high temperatures. The word “terracotta” comes from the Italian word for “baked earth,” which reflects the process used to create these tiles.
They are made from natural clay that is moulded into shape and then fired in a kiln at high temperatures. This process produces a hard, durable tile resistant to water, stains, and scratches.
Terracotta offers several advantages over other types of tiles, including:
Craftsmanship and Artistry
Handmade terracotta tiles from Tuscany are crafted by skilled artisans who deeply understand the material and techniques. These craftsmen have refined their skills over generations, ensuring each tile is meticulously formed and finished.
Handmade tiles’ level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is unparalleled, resulting in a superior product.
Customisation and Uniqueness
Handmade terracotta tiles are individually crafted, allowing for slight variations in size, shape, and texture. These subtle irregularities contribute to the tile’s character and give it a distinct, artisanal quality. The ability to create custom designs and patterns further enhances the uniqueness of terracotta tiles.
Authenticity and Heritage
Handmade terracotta tiles from Tuscany carry a sense of authenticity and heritage. They are made using traditional methods passed down through generations, preserving the region’s rich terracotta tile-making traditions. Handmade tiles offer authenticity, and historical significance adds to their appeal and desirability.
Handmade terracotta tiles possess a unique aesthetic beauty that is difficult to replicate. The imperfections, variations in colour, and handcrafted textures add depth and character to the tiles, creating a warm and inviting ambience.
The rustic charm and organic appeal of handmade tiles contribute to their popularity among designers and homeowners seeking an authentic and timeless look.
Durability and Longevity
