The square Spanish Mission Red floor tiles are the most popular and come in the following sizes: 8x8, 12x12, and 16x16 in. The tiles can be used throughout an entire project. As one of man’s earliest discoveries, terra cotta tile embodies timelessness. Perhaps its classic appeal stems from the richness of the earth baked into it or how it glows at the mere hint of sunlight. Spanish Mission Red Terra Cotta floor tiles combine color and texture to create the rare beauty of centuries-old tradition.

  • Tile has a thickness of 1/2"
  • Have chipped edges and small craters.
  • There is variations in thickness, flatness, size, squareness.
  • May contain small hairline cracks and scratches on the surface.
  • There is variety of color between tiles and within individual tiles.

The properties of earthtone color, and texture of our Spanish Mission Red Tile are derived from its clay. The tiles are composed of clay deposits from California and totally handcrafted using old-world methods introduced to this region by the first Spanish explorers and missionaries. Using local natural resources the early Spanish settlers made the first Missions with adobe clay tiles, which were only sun-air dry. And covered floors, walls, and roofs with terra cotta tiles (baked earth). Clay tiles were essential for the foundations of the first California Missions, and continue today to be an important element in the building of Spanish Revival Architecture homes in California, and in other states such as Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Florida to name a few.

All Spanish Mission Tiles must be sealed in order to preserve their beauty. We recommend to use a high quality penetrating sealer such as 511 Impregnator or 511 Porous Plus from Miracle Sealants Company

511 Porous Plus is a penetrating sealer designed for the protection of the most porous surfaces. 511 Porous Plus forms an invisible barrier that is resistant to moisture and stains while allowing vapor to escape. 511 Porous Plus is not a surface coating and will not alter the natural look. All surfaces are harder and less slippery. Therefore, 511 Porous Plus is highly recommended for all our Mexican terra-cotta floor tiles.

The Spanish Mission Red Terracotta floor tiles are made with clay deposits from California, and handcrafted in Mexico. The tiles are made from California clay, dug out of the ground and fired to a temperature at which the clay undergoes chemical changes and becomes permanently hard. They are shaped by hand pressing quarried clay on a wooden frame. The Spanish Mission tile collection is entirely hand made and fired at low temperatures embodying a timeless and authentic California Mission Style Tiles.
