The La Terre Collection
La Terre Couture 1
Ceramic — USA/Mexico
Ornamental and elegant, the La Terre Couture collection features hand-stenciled terra cotta tiles with raised, intricately patterned surfaces. Available in any solid La Terre collection color and a variety of sizes and shapes, they have a unique depth of character and dimensionality.
A History of Quality
The striking styles, bold colors and dazzling patterns found in the La Terre collection are inspired by a variety of tilemaking traditions, including the Portuguese azulejo and Spanish ceramic tiles of the Iberian peninsula, and the Moorish-inspired Zellige tiles of Morocco. Baked in small batches using a mixture of clays and strengthening adhesives, these hardwearing tiles are intricately hand-painted and stenciled one at a time by master craftsmen located in Mexico and the southwestern United States. Owing to their artisanal nature, the resulting tiles are rich with unique irregularities and subtle variations from piece to piece. One of our most diverse and customizable collections, La Terre tiles are incomparable for their durability, versatility and Old World spirit.

Because of the individualized nature of the materials we sell, many of the products have significant variation in size, shape, color, texture and thickness. These irregularities are inherent in hand-made and natural materials such as ours. It is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and those acting on behalf of the owner such as the designer, architect, contractor or installer to verify that the material specified is appropriate for its final application and to review and approve all materials before the materials are shipped. Samples are available on request. Samples are given as an indication of a particular product and are for reference only. Due to the inherent variation in the size, shape, thickness, texture and color of our materials, individual samples cannot be considered exact representations.
Through expert photography, every effort has been made to faithfully represent our products and materials on this website. However, due to lighting and color variations, no picture can be considered an exact representation of the material being shown.
