Stationed in the hillside outside the city of Valencia, Spain, Ceramica Decorativa is a company that treats the tile production process as an art form. A family run operation -- now in its fifth generation -- the Tile of Spain-branded manufacturer began fabricating terracotta tile in 1862. More than a century later, Ceramica Decorativa continues to produce high-end quality products. It is most known for its handcrafted tiles that are supplied to markets worldwide.
“This is not such a technical tile manufacturer,” said Ernest Catafal of Ceramica Decorativa. “We are more traditional. In this area, a lot of companies make handmade terracotta.”
