Last month, I saw this beautiful Granada tile on Orange Beautiful’s blog and was inspired to look into the company’s other patterns. My family is Mexican, so I am no stranger to talavera tile and coincidentally saw some beautiful patterns while I was in Spain back in June.
I think what initially appealed to me was the scale of the Granada tiles and the fact that their patterns look so modern and relevant despite the fact that they were probably designed a long time ago. They would just as easily look at home in a modern home as they would in a Spanish villa. The company is based out of Los Angeles and has been featured in several national publications. The company is named after the city of Granada, Nicaragua, where the tiles are made and it takes great strides to manage natural resources responsibly.
