Any time I show a home that has Saltillo tile in it, I begin my hunt for the special tiles that have animal prints in them.
If they are authentic tiles from Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico, you’re sure to find a treat! I’ve yet to find any tiles with peacock prints in them, other than online, but I know there are some out there.
As the clay is drying in the yards, animals that are roaming will occasionally step on the wet tiles and they dry this way in the sun. I’ve heard that they have been commercially made to replicate this technique, but that’s no fun.
Do you have saltillo tile? Do you have any prints in them? If so, I’d love to see your pics! Post them! 🙂
