  • About us 

    tiles.mx, our innovative project of architectural coatings!


    Presenting a fascinating fusion between the origins and artisan tradition of the clay pineapples of San Jose de Gracia, Michoacan; and the historical beauty of more than 500 years of hand-decorated tiles in the world.


    In this way, we present an effort to preserve and celebrate the ancestral techniques of Michoacan craftsmanship, in a new form of expression, through a unique collection of coverings that capture the essence of Mexican mestizaje, which is part of Mexican national culture.�


    Our talented artisans have developed 100% handcrafted squeeze molds and pastillaje applications typical of San Jose de Gracia, a small town in northwestern Michoacan, that accurately reproduce the magnificent traditional finishes of San Jose de Gracia's pineapples.�


    Each tile is carefully crafted by hand, infusing it with the passion and dedication of our artisans. The elaborate designs and patterns reflect the richness and diversity of Michoacán's cultural heritage, transporting that great charm and beauty to different architectural spaces that offer a special touch of mysticism. �

    On the other hand, and in order to give a touch of modernity to our pieces, we have included a wide variety of glazes and colors that we offer thanks to our partnership with Cerámica SURO. Company with extensive experience in the production of ceramics for over 50 years. With this, we aim to offer our customers creative freedom so that each project becomes a unique expression of style and personality. Offering from vibrant, bold and metallic tones to subtle and sophisticated, we have the perfect palette to make any architectural vision a reality.�


    Our vision is to transform architectural spaces into living canvases, full of history and tradition, so that every time someone looks at these coatings, they are immersed in the majesty of Mexican culture, and at the same time, enjoy the modernity offered by the colors and finishes of our high quality products.

    Mold Tile


    "The squeeze tile mosaics are initially carved in wood with the intended design, size, and shape.

    Subsequently, a plaster mold is created to achieve the same size, decoration, and shape as the tile.

    Then, the perfect clay mixture is made to create a paste in the form of a tortilla, which is then placed inside the mold.

    Carefully, the decorated tortilla is removed from the mold.

    Finally, hand adjustments are made to achieve the desired quality."

    This passage describes the process of creating the "Azulejo de molde de apretón," which involves using a squeeze mold technique to make handcrafted, artistic tiles

    Gumpaste Tile

    Hand decorated Tile

    "Green woods are obtained from the environment to be cut to the desired size, and a 4-space mold is created.


    By mixing four different types of earth, the perfect blend is achieved to pour into the mold in the shape of a box.


    The tiles are left to air-dry on the floor for 24 to 48 hours, allowing the clay to undergo a slow drying process.


    Carefully, small clay molds are created and hand-decorated to form small figures called 'pastillaje,' which will be used to decorate the clay tiles.


    The tiles are then left to dry in the shade and subsequently in the sun for 7 to 10 days before being fired in the kiln.
