PEDRALBES Antique Terracotta - TEXTURES

2 Textures or Body Styles


All Pedralbes Antique Terracotta colors are available in 2 textures or body styles. For more colors details go to Pedralbes Terracotta Colors page. Each body style has different characteristics: production process, thickness, surface texture, clay type and color, price range, etc. The 2 textures are arranged by price level, from lowest to highest.

OHS Texture has the edges straight, rough and slightly raised sometimes, as a result of removing the wood mold upwards. The surface is smooth but slightly irregular, with a few holes, and it usually has some lines in one or several directions. these lines are finger marks, as the "final touch" is applied by the hands with muddy water. This is also the "signature" on each tile to proof that it has been truly hand-molded. Overall, it has an antique but refined, elegant look.


-  VINTAGE (VTG) Texture

VTG Texture has the edges smooth, irregular and slightly rounded. The surface looks rough, but it is quite smooth to the touch, with holes, sandy areas and marks that look like they have been worn out through the years. There may be some larger holes on the surface which are intended to be filled with the grout cement during installation, and to be waxed or stained (Final Finish) afterwards. The result is a more rustic antique look than the OHS texture, which has been worn out by the passage of time.






Availability: All items are custom made per order. No cancellations allowed. Allow 2 to 16 weeks for delivery, depending on item and quantity ordered. Most orders are supplied in 4 to 8 weeks.  Product Order: When placing an order, please SPECIFY TEXTURE, COLOR and FINISH for EACH item.  Texture: All items, except the Decorative Designs and some special pieces where noted, are available in Original Hand Smoothed (OHS) or Vintage (VTG) texture.  Finish: All items are available in Waxed or Matte finish. Waxed finish is recommended for all interior floor and wall applications, with a few exceptions like, shower walls and fireplace surrounds. See Recommended Applications page for more detailed information.  Final Finish: A Final Finish application, including grouted areas, with our recommended Wax (Interiors) or Stain (exteriors), and a maintenance program, are required to achieve the same look of the samples or sample boards used to specify the product.  Floral White: Floral White color is not recommended to install combined with other colors, as it requires a different type of wax for the Final Finish and maintenance.  Exterior Use: Exterior application is recommended for Warm Weather Areas ONLY.  Glazed Colors: For interior and exterior applications (warm weather only). For exterior floor applications it is recommended to use Vintage (VTG) texture, as it has a higher slip resistance. See Product Info pages for more detailed information.  Sizes: All sizes are NOMINAL and have the usual hand molded terracotta variations. If an EXACT measure is required, due to layout design or combination with other type of material, please contact us to evaluate all possibilities. Color Variations: All items are produced per order and therefore each order may have a slight difference in color or stain shade with other prior orders. Add-on orders may not have the exact same look as original orders. Decorative Tile Variations: All Decorative Designs items are handmade. Color and design variations, within the same tile or between tiles of the same lot, should be expected and accepted. Digital Colors: Product pictures are intended to be as accurate as possible and should be considered as approximations only. For aesthetic purpose, some pictures may have the grout areas filled using digital colors. Actual samples and/or grouted sample boards (with the Final Finish), representing the "finished" look of the installed tile, should be used in making a final decision.
