PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer returns after 30 days from the date of purchase.  We also DO NOT accept returns on special order sinks (anything other than medium oval). We also do NOT accept returns on floor tile.

* Unfortunately, We do NOT refund shipping charges, unless we made a mistake.
** The 20% restocking fee is charged because of the time and labor required to unpack and return each tile back into stock in the warehouse.

If the product is damaged in shipping:

If the carton has visible external damages, or you witness it being mishandled or dropped, or the merchandise is otherwise visibly damaged, we advise you to refuse the delivery and let the carrier keep and return the product to us. Any product accepted with visual damage should be documented (with photos and a written description) with the carrier in order for us to file a claim on your behalf. If you choose to accept the order, keep the original carton and packaging. You must then notify Mexican Tile Designs within two (2) business days of the damage. You may call us at 866-320-1628 or email us at: Mexican Tile Designs. As soon as we hear from you, we will notify the carrier and arrange for an inspection and pickup of damaged merchandise if needed.  Please note that the customer bears all risks associated with merchandise after it is received, including those risks associated with merchandise returned to Mexican Tile Designs until it is received back in our facility. Mexican Tile Designs reserves the right to refuse refund or exchange on any product or equipment.  We only refund shipping costs if the return is a result of our error.


We will contact you to make arrangements for replacement of damaged pieces.

If you realize your mistake prior to your order leaving our facility, we will make every effort to correct it free of charge.  If you receive an order and wish to exchange or return it, we are happy to quickly send you a replacement order once we receive your returned product in its original condition. PLEASE SEE RESTRICTIONS BELOW.  We will refund you the purchase price, less a 20% RESTOCKING FEE **.  If you need a RUSH replacement, to expedite the process, we suggest you request a credit (rather than a replacement) and then place a new order. We will ship the new order as soon as the product is available and a credit will be applied approximately 7 business days after the returned products are received at our facility in their original condition.  We must receive the returned products within 30 days of customer receipt date. Damaged items will NOT be refunded.

Please note: Small variations of color from one tile to another are normal and due to the handmade process. Similarly, imperfections are one of the unique features of these handmade Mexican tiles and ceramic products.  These are not mass-produced factory tiles, but individually made by artisans in Mexico. Our Traditional Line of tile is the most rustic and if you are not sure you want this look, please order a sample first.  If you want a more uniform tile, please order from the Especial or Prima lines, however these can vary from lot to lot.  

For instance, in the Traditional line, not all tiles are perfectly square or the exact same size.  These variations are evidence that these lovely products are made by hand and contributes to their unique and beautiful look.  Another cause for confusion is that not all computer monitors display colors in the same fashion.  If you try to print the tile image, you may get an entirely different color depending on your printer’s settings.   If you have the time and are trying to match an existing color, we recommend ordering 2 or 3 sample tiles.

  • No returns on floor tile.
