Tango is privileged to offer an authentic line of Talavera tiles represented by Paul for our customers to enjoy. It is handmade by Paul’s partner company, Talavera Santa Catarina, one of only 14 certified Talavera manufacturers, all located in Puebla, Mexico. The process adheres to the standards set by the local Council of Talavera Regulations requiring production to pass 16 laboratory tests every month to assure standards are met for color, transparency, absorption, metal content and many other characteristics. Authentic Talavera is often imitated but never replicated.
