With roots in the 16th century, IDI Talavera is one of the most historically accurate, highest quality and beautiful Talavera collections in the world. Designer Paul Schatz draws from centuries-old designs that originally graced the grandest palaces and churches. Variations in each meticulously handcrafted tile reveal the traditional artistry that makes each piece its own work of art. Together they form a rich display of color and form, unique to the space they fill and breathtaking with every view. We strongly recommend that you sample before ordering, keeping in mind that every single tile will be unique. Color variations can be significant, especially for the Black/Brown color which is made from recycled cans and can look light brown to almost black. All colors vary based on outside temperatures, humidity and other non-controllable factors.
