Clay Soft Taupe
The Clay Soft Taupe is a handmade wall tile measuring 6 x 20 CM and 0.8 CM thick from one of our factories in Spain. This Spanish tile is semi manual, double baked, double stoked and glazed which means each individual tile is unique. Because of this artisanal process, the tile will differ in caliber, flatness, straightness, texture, design and shade. This creates its own personality and appearance which makes this tile unique.
Good to know
Our Spanish ceramic tiles are glazed by hand before being baked in a large tile kiln. The production process still takes place in an authentic way. This is often reflected in the finish of the tiles. The top layer is very durable and can therefore be used for various purposes. These Spanish tiles are only suitable as wall tiles.
When used in wet areas: Please check before use if there are tiles without glaze coverage. Do not use these tiles in areas with running water (e.g. in a shower cabin).
Installing Spanish tiles
Spanish tiles are easy to install and have their own instruction manual. Upon purchase, you will receive a step-by-step plan with instructions and points of attention. We recommend that you read this manual carefully before installing the tiles. Or hire a good tiler who is familiar with this type of tiles.
These authentic tiles can be used as wall tiles both indoors and outdoors. The following applies for outdoors: place on a paved surface like concrete, under a canopy, protected from water and sun. A significant frost can cause the glaze to crack.
Clay tiles are ideal for wet areas such as a shower, toilet or bathroom, but also in a kitchen or hallway they fit beautifully. Nevertheless these tiles are also excellent to be placed in a hospitality venue or store and are the perfect addition to the preferred look and feel.
Colors, patterns and sizes
Spanish tiles come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Each batch has a small color difference. The tiles from 1 box also often have color differences and irregularities. This is sometimes done on purpose to create a certain atmosphere or has to do with the production process and should be considered normal.
In addition to the standard rectangular and square shapes, other shapes are also very popular such as hexagons, triangles, fish scales (Escamas) and laternas.

Spanish tiles have a hard top layer and are easy to maintain. Mop weekly with an all purpose cleaner. Preferably an acid-free product that is not too greasy. In case of heavy pollution, we recommend using Azule Dirt Remover. This degreaser deals with most dirt on various types of tiles.
