Terracotta Handmade Italian Tiles
Terracotta Tiles are a favourite of many homeowners, designers and architects. The classic colours are reminiscent of earlier times and add a warm, rustic look to any space.
Terracotta tiles can be used internally and externally and our range includes the common colours found widely as well as bespoke product.
Large Range of Handmade Terracotta
RMS carry unique hand-made Italian Terracotta Tiles which come in a variety of sizes and colours. This traditional hand-made terracotta undergoes a semi-polishing process at the factory to create floors with a “worn” look. The result is an alternation of honed and matt surfaces which combine to give subtle shading variations which is not possible with conventional material.
Italian Terracotta Tiles can be provided in a variety of sizes, shapes, shades and colours to make your installation visually apart from anything else in Australia.

About Terracotta Tiles
The word Terracotta comes from Latin meaning “Baked Earth” which aptly describes this simple but elegant product that has been used for centuries in many different forms.
Terracotta is produced in many countries around the world, either for storage jars, decorative items, or building products. The different raw materials and firing methods create a large variety of finishes and colours which can be unique to a country or region.
Throughout history Terracotta has been sourced and made by hand which creates a unique product like no other. Since the advent of mechanisation, factories have been producing Terracotta which creates a more uniform product that can be mass produced. This uniform product has been used around swimming pools, in homes and commercial projects around the world and has added to the appeal of this versatile material.
In todays market there are still two options for those wanting to buy Terracotta. RMS carry a range of Spanish Terracotta produced by modern industrial processes with a range of colours, sizes and finishes.
