Walker Zanger is bringing an age-old Italian tradition to its catalog of tiles with the introduction of the Cotto Toscano collection.

“Cotto Toscano perfectly encapsulates Walker Zanger’s enduring passion for all things handmade,” said Erika Egede-Nissen, marketing director for Walker Zanger. “It’s our pursuit to find unique products that empower designers to create their boldest design visions and consider materials, like this richly colored, one-of-a-kind terra cotta collection that has a beautiful story of origin through its materials and craftsmanship.”

Made in Tuscany, each terra cotta tile is hand-crafted and, inspired by Italy’s adoration of espresso, the rare, rich color gives the collection a rustic, sophisticated allure. Like the terra cotta facades seen across the Mediterranean, Cotto Toscano can be used for both interior and exterior walls and floors.

The most distinctive characteristic of Cotto Toscano is its deep, chocolate-like color. As dark and inviting as a freshly brewed cup of espresso, it offers a striking yet versatile design aesthetic for both contemporary and traditional styles alike. World-renowned for their unrivaled craftsmanship, this family-run workshop has established an enduring legacy of sought-after terra cotta products that have even been used in Florence’s Uffizi Gallery and the famous Duomo.

Dense and durable, Cotto Toscano is ideal for even the most high-traffic applications. This collection is a favorable building material as interior and exterior walls and floors, pools and spas, and bathrooms and showers.
