Inspired by Talavera pottery from the Mexican cities of Puebla, Cholula and Tecali, and named after the Spanish city of Talavera de la Reina, the uniquely Mexican print has been produced since the 16th century and is a blend of indigenous and European artistry.
The history of Mexican pottery is as colourful as its various patterns; over the course of its history, as the style of Mexican pottery changed from rigid geometric Aztec shapes to a more natural design with animal and floral patterns, so emerged the distinct Talavera style seen on this print story and tiles from the region today.
Traditionally only painted in blue, the Talavera had only a few other colours introduced over the centuries. The subtle and sophisticated shades of dark red, navy blue, earthy taupe and white that feature in this print reflect the simple colour palette of these artisanal tiles.
This One Piece is one of our bestselling shapes, providing great support and a flattering cut, while always doing so in style.
