How do I install my Mexican Tiles?

  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, acids or bleaches.

How long will it take to have my order delivered?

We believe in keeping low to zero inventory helps many ways: Environment, low costs, space, energy, etc, and we are happy to pass those savings to you and give more to the Artisan, that is the beauty of working directly with the handcrafters: You get what you really want.
