We produce handmade bricks by mixing water and clay, as it is found in nature without the addition of chemicals.
STARTING POINT: THE COTTO
The Etruscans already knew the extraordinary qualities of handmade terracotta: the art of producing it has defied time, giving us unique shapes and colors over the centuries, such as to deeply mark and shape the Umbrian-Tuscan landscape. Respecting this millenary tradition, therefore, the work we do follows ancient rites that impress everywhere the sign of a simple and natural elegance, creating artifacts that give your home a warmth that industrial material certainly cannot give. Our product also guarantees great resistance qualities that derive from the processing phases that the raw material passes through: clay.
RESPECT FOR TRADITION
It is kneaded in such a way as to make the brick porous: the artifacts undergo a long drying and then get fired in the oven at over 1000 ° C which makes them resistant to frost and heat. More and more nowadays the choice of furnishing one’s home with handmade terracotta represents a choice of taste and class. Preferring bricks made one by one means preferring the warmth and uniqueness of tradition.
The formats we make have different applications: the bricks are mainly used for the construction of fireplaces, supporting columns and internal arches. The tiles have their greatest application in the construction of internal and external floors, lofts and attics. The larger squares are used for internal and external flooring, while the smaller sizes are used for bathroom and kitchen cladding. Steps and corners, as well as for stair flooring, are used for thresholds and window sills. The strips (Listelli), originally from the Middle Ages, are mainly used for the construction of outdoor floors that must withstand a high load. Bricks with a thickness of more than 5 cm are used for the construction of load-bearing structures. We also produce skirting boards,
hexagons, octagons, lozenges and any other format required.
Our bricks are also in great demand for the paving of squares and for the restoration of monuments but they also fit perfectly in more modern contexts.
