The hand-finished terra cotta tiles for Walker Zanger’s Andalucia collection reimagine Traditional Arabic and Old Spanish motifs and patterns on a larger scale.
“Andalucia is made of authentic terra cotta and hand-pressed by local artisans at our state-of-the-art facility in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, which is historically and culturally rooted in the tradition of tile making,” said Jared Becker, Walker Zanger vice president of design and marketing. “Each Andalucia tile emphasizes intricate reliefs and patterns layered over one another to create an elaborate design with a modern aesthetic. You can arrange the relief and flat tiles to design an ornate statement wall or distinguished focal point.”
Andalucia reflects the unique blend of Arabic and European designs found in Seville, Cordoba, and Granada in southern Spain, revealing both their ancient influences and modern sensibilities. The two large-format hexagon tiles, Marrakesh and Fez, are named after Moroccan cities and feature geometric patterns that create an infinite variety. Additionally, the 10”x10” Puerta (Spanish for “door”) is directly inspired by an intricately-detailed door near Walker Zanger’s San Miguel de Allende factory. The San Miguel design finds inspiration in the Mexican city’s baroque Spanish architecture with its layered geometry of a hexagon on a diamond.
