It’s true. There is an abundance of Mexican tile for sale around the world today. But what is Mexican tile by definition?

Can I tell you a story?  One day, I received a call from someone named Mary. Mary was smack-dab in the middle of building a Spanish Colonial style home. She called us looking for Mexican tile for sale.  When I prompted Mary to tell me more specifically what she needed, she simply said “Mexican tile.”  To which, I responded: “What type of Mexican tile do you need, Mary?” And that began our meaningful dialog which resulted in her Spanish Colonial home adorned with several types of our Mexican tile for sale.

True story.  You see, the term “Mexican Tile” can take on many meanings.

At Rustico, we carry 4 types of Mexican tile for sale.
