Product Information
Minor variations in size, color, shade and surface texture are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Images shown are representative, but may not indicate all variations in these characteristics.
Cotto (derived from the Italian ‘terra cotta’, or ‘baked earth’) is part of a long lineage of fired clays that date back to the dawn of civilization itself. From Egyptian water jugs to Chinese roof tiles or Roman bricks, terra cotta has been part of the human story for as long as we’ve had an alphabet. The materials in Cotto tile haven’t changed much over the millennia, while the firing process has evolved; from kiln furniture to mold designs to firing method, our handmade and high-fired Cotto is our modern take on an ancient tradition.
Made from locally-sourced, organic clays, our hand crafted Cotto tiles are made just outside of historic San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Elevating the storied tradition of terra cotta, modern day artisans hand form and fire each individual tile. The tiles’ clay formulation is mixed with water and blended to the ideal consistency, then pressed in a mold to dry for 1-2 weeks until the proper moisture level is achieved for firing. At this point, wood ash is added to the surface of our ‘Fired Earth’ tiles to give them their distinctive surface coloration.
