Portuguese blue and red tiles décor for Christmas season

The word azulejo stems from Arabic roots, meaning “small polished stone”.

Ceramic tiles are deeply embedded in Portugal’s history and culture. They are everywhere inside and outside old buildings.

Today, it is common to see them decorating restaurants, bars, railway and subway stations, and regular homes. They are also used in interior decoration.

Antique azulejos were decoration was initially dominated by blues and whites, and then yellow and green. This seamless tile pattern was inspired by Portuguese tiles that can be found in the Porto district.

The use of the color red is a creative freedom and serves to lend a Christmas air to this object that is so traditional and beloved throughout Portugal.

This collection is just a sample of the products you can find in the store.
