Fired Earth

Fired Earth is a slightly softer presentation of natural red clay, with the natural color and variation differentiating each handmade tile. This tone is effortlessly earthy, radiating a subtle orange glow. It  seamlessly blends with existing decor while giving your interior a natural feel. Taking after its namesake, Fired Earth evokes the image of golden earth heated by the sun, instantly adding warmth to any space.

cotto adobe bathroom tiles


Adobe is the lightest of the core colors, with a nod to soft sand tones. This sunny hue gently envelops any indoor or outdoor space. Inspired by clay pottery weathered and faded by the blazing sun, it carries a natural radiance. Almost tan in appearance, it incorporates yellow undertones which add a touch of vibrancy to the delicate hue.

cotto blanco subway tiles


Blanco, the lightest in our Cotto collection, is a uniquely whitewashed terra cotta. This soft sweep of color creates a delicate aura, reminiscent of the sun casting its rays upon powdery clay earth as the warm clay peeks through. Modern and refined, this is a one-of-a-kind tile that quietly stuns in any space.

Embrace your dark side with dark brown Madera Cotto. Like burnt brown sugar, the Cotto’s surface appears almost scorched. Look for notes of sienna, chocolate, and charcoal for a multi-dimensional appearance. The color wash is highly visible, offering a dynamic finish with heavy visual weight.

cotto oscura square tiles


Oscura is our matte black take on Cotto. Its muted, almost-black wash resembles a soft shadow. With a predominantly cool-toned surface, it harbors a very faint warmth from the natural clay that peeks through, adding visual complexity in each handmade piece, contributing to its organic and nuanced aesthetic.
