Prima Mexican Tile - San Gabriel
Our exquisite raised-relief decorative Prima line provides the highest quality, high fired Mexican ceramic tile in both gloss and matte finishes. These delightful, textured tiles are sometimes referred to as Malibu tile or Santa Barbara tile.
Our Prima high-relief tiles are each individually handmade using the ancient Spanish method called Cuerda Seca (Dry Cord). The artist first traces the design onto a blank tile, then painstakingly applies each color of paint using a bulb syringe. Once the design is perfect, the tile is then fired at high temperature to impart strength and durability.
The colors and designs coordinate with our Prima solid color tiles, trim tile, and Prima raised-relief border tile. They also coordinate well with many of our hand-painted Mexican ceramic sinks. These gorgeous textured tile are ideal for pools, fountains, bathroom countertops, showers and tub surrounds, kitchen counters and backsplashes, outdoor kitchens and barbecues, patios and almost anywhere else your want to add a delightful textured touch of color and design. Every tile is truly a colorful and tactile work of art that will add lasting beauty and warmth to your home.
