4. Terracotta Tiles
To better understand what terracotta tiles are, we should first break down the word ‘terracotta’ in two separate parts: ‘terra’, the Latin word for Earth, and ‘cotta’ which means baked. Terracotta tilesare exactly that: a type of fired clay, typically of a brownish-red colour and unglazed. What makes this type of tiles appealing is its natural colour. Terracotta tiles are perfect for home spacesthat give an air of simplicity and authenticity. EKA Group is a proud distributor of Manetti Gusmano & Figli. View more here.
