THE TRUE DEFINITION OF HANDMADE ...
The purpose of The Tile Press is to seek out the finest examples of handmade tile and celebrate the enviroments that have forged the skill sets that make a tile every bit as unique as the design itself. In our mind, there is no better example of what it means to be handmade, than the tile produced in Saltillo, Mexico. There are no fancy patterns, and no marketing budgets. Saltillo is pure craftsmanship born out of centuries of perfecting the same tile over and over again. This is a photographic celebration, and a reminder of what handmade truly means.
Because we are devoted to celebrating innovation while honoring tradition; we have a heartfelt reverence for the unique art and history that each tile bears. Every hand-crafted tile represents part of a beautiful mosaic of people and places, society and community; all of which we want to remember and relay.
We are excited to learn from new partners, producers, designers and installers from across the globe--we are ever in search of new tile stories to tell!
