Châteauneuf-du-Faou is where we salvaged this lovely reclaimed white terra cotta tile lot.  White terra cotta tile is a rare find and it was wonderful to locate this treasure in this historic town located in the middle of Brittany. Overlooking the river Aulne, the bridge over this waterway was built in 1638, when Louis XIII was king of France.  This reclaimed terra cotta tile lot nearly feels as old as that!  The surface of the clay has been worn into a matte, stone like patina, the straight, well-crafted edges are soft and aged from over 150-years of wear and the soft white hues are quiet like the countryside where it resided.

Recommended Sealer after Installation:  Akemi Stone Impregnation for French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile Flooring 

Cleaning and Maintenance:  This lot will need surface cleaning after installation. Vacuum, then clean with Black Soap (Savon Noir) to disinfect, maintain, protect and enhance patina.
