La Maison de Tunisie Collection is a hand made European terra cotta tile that we glaze and kiln fire with Pavé's original hand decorated Moresque motifs. Inspired from the 16th century Europe, Moresque designs are a blend of Islamic applied arts with an Italian Renaissance aesthetic. Using hand made European terra cotta tile, we kiln fire our Moresque decoratives in two colors - Old Porcelain or Coal. Extremely durable and long-lasting floors - great for commercial or residential setting.
