  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) May 13, 2011 - La Fuente Imports is now able to offer their clientele the beautiful, hand-crafted and painted Talavera tiles with Day of the Dead motifs. These eye-catching accent pieces are great for placing in kitchens, baths, hanging on the wall around your indoors' bar area or outside party area. Also, the decorative ceramic tiles are perfect for covering the risers on a staircase. In order to 'waste not', use your left-over tiles as excellent coasters and trivets. One the practical side, these tiles may serve for both decorative and functional purposes, simultaneously. Andy Fuentes, owner of La Fuente, is even offering a special on these spectacular tiles - "Buy by the box and save 20 percent!"

    Little has changed in the manufacturing process of Talavera tiles, since their inception in Mexico in 1653, when a potters' guild was formed to regulate their manufacturing. Today, the basic process remains virtually the same.

    The Day of the Dead is a festivity which originated in Mexico over 500 years ago, to honor their dead in the after-life. It is also a celebration of life after death, and takes place each year on the 2nd of November. Though now considered a Catholic festivity, other countries are also now celebrating this date with parades.
