Saltillo tiles are handmade tiles from Mexico. They are rustic and have a lot of personality. Saltillo tiles have the following characteristics.

  • Saltillos are not all flat.
  • Saltillos are not all square.
  • Saltillos are not all the same size.
  • Saltillos are not all the same thickness.
  • Saltillos have chipped edges.
  • Saltillos have lime pops (little craters).
  • Saltillos occasionally have cracks on the surface.
  • Saltillos occasionally have animal prints. These are considered lucky!
  • Saltillos have shade variations (even within the same tile).
  • Saltillos are prone to alkali in the clay. To minimize problems they must be properly sealed and kept sealed.
  • Saltillos have sandy backs (caused by dumping the wet tile from the mold onto the ground to be sun dried before before baking).
  • THESE ARE NOT DEFECTS. They are what make Saltillo tiles so attractive.
