Rustic, handpainted and traditional, Talavera tiles from Mexico have been a tradition since the 16th century. The glazes and the method of forming the tiles by hand have remained the same for over four hundred years. Many of the designs originated in North Africa, then traveled to Spain with the Moors and across the Atlantic with the Spanish. Some of the designs shown here were found in Puebla, Mexico, the original home of Mexican tile making. The patterns are reproduced for Bullnose Tile by artisans in the spontaneous style appreciated in Mexican artistry. Interior applications only.
