Mixed Classic Sets
Our ever-popular Mixed Sets of Classics showcase Spanish, Mediterranean, Latin American and Portuguese design. These beautiful tiles are handmade and hand painted and feature centuries old designs originating from some of the world’s most culturally rich and colourful places like Spain, Portugual, Morocco, Mexico & the rest of Latin America. We have tiles known as Talavera ceramics, Azulejos and more. The Talavera ceramics date back to 15th century Spain. At the time, the Spanish used clay and fire to make ceramics and then hand painted each piece with designs derived from their cultural influences -- Italy, Portugual, Morocco and Asia. The Spanish then introduced the art form to Mexico where today Talavera artisans are still creating beautiful handmade and hand painted tiles which showcase the exquisite designs of centuries past and lands far away.
What makes our tiles so beautiful and captivating is the fact that each tile has very subtle differences due to the handmade processes. The tiles are naturally rustic in appearance which gives off a warm and inviting feeling. Each tile has a unique charm which machine-made tiles can not replicate.
We have selected designs that stay true to the rich history of Talavera ceramics. Whether you are looking for tiles with a distinct Spanish, Mediterranean, Moroccan or Mexican style or perhaps want to have fun creating your own unique pattern using a mix of tiles – Old World has the handcrafted tiles for your needs. Use them in and around your home to add beautiful colour and style.
