The Alicante Collection
Black Terra Cotta — Spain
Black Spanish Alicante Terra Cotta is created using a unique combination of multiple clays, resulting in an elegant and distinctive dark chocolate coloration that adds a clean, contemporary element to a wide variety of design styles.
A History of Quality
The rich and distinctive tiles in the Alicante collection pair the traditional, rustic beauty of terra cotta flooring with a sleek, contemporary color palette. Their nuanced appearance results from the use of variable, naturally-occuring dark clays found throughout the Catalonia region of northwestern Spain. The clays are mixed, extruded and cut into individual bricks or tiles. Each piece is finished by hand to ensure the edging and surfaces capture the timeworn texture of authentic antique terra cotta. Produced with care and expert craftsmanship, this handmade terra cotta has an unparalleled depth of character. Once kiln-fired, the pieces are inspected thoroughly for quality and structural integrity, then carefully packaged and shipped for use in new installations.

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.
