I recently found out about a great source of tile called Rustico Tile & Stone. They are a small, family-run company based in Leander, Texas (just outside of Austin). Not only are they the largest manufacturer for authentic Saltillo tile in Mexico, but they are also a leading supplier for Cement Tile and Cantera Stone. And the best part is they ship worldwide! I wanted to share some of my favourite patterns they carry and some inspirational photos of spaces with their tiles and similar ones.
I have to start with the cement tile because it is one of my favourite tiles and comes in such amazing patterns. I almost went with this type in my kitchen/foyer but in the end went with something alot smaller. I love the result but I am still dying to try some of these…maybe in my next kitchen. Their cement tile is reminiscent of older style encaustic tiles. Cement tile is available in many designs, shapes and sizes. It is extremely durable, easy-to-maintain, and can be fully customized in colors specific to the space where it is installed.
I pulled out some inspirational photos we have featured previously. More reasons why these tiles are the best!
Saltillo Tile is a type of terra cotta floor tile that is handmade with rustic characteristics. It is available in 3 finishes – Traditional, Manganese and Antique Saltillo. All finishes comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and have natural color variations. This is the perfect tile for a rustic southern, Mexican vibe.
Cantera stone is architectural stone that is cut and hand-carved. Available in many colors, Cantera is commonly used as columns, tile, balusters, range hoods, fireplaces, and surrounds.
