Saltillo, Mexican Tile & Terra Cotta Restoration

Saltillo tile is an unglazed clay floor tile made in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. The tile is made from natural clay deposits from that region which is one of the finest natural clay deposits in the world. Briefly, this is the manufacturing process.

  1. Clay is excavated from the earth
  2. Clay is mixed with water
  3. The wet clay is formed into tile shapes
  4. The tiles are dried in the sun
  5. The dried tiles are fired in kilns
