They manufacture tiles and fired-clay bricks in a completely artisanal and manual way.
The elaboration of the pieces is carried out just with two materials: clay and water, using wooden moulds and making them piece by piece.
After, the drying process comes in, where they have to pat the pieces so they don’t lose their shape. Then they have to wash them to eliminate impurities and lastly they scrape the edges to leave them nice and smooth.
Afterwards, the pieces are gathered and put into a wood-fired oven – also by hand – one piece at a time. The firing process lasts for around 20 hours. They will have to be adding wood and olive pomace non-stop during these hours. Then the pieces are left to settle for a week and finally they are stored and sold.
Their products are dedicated to the rehabilitation of old buildings and new construction of dwellings.
The craft has run through the family for three generations and has been taught from fathers to sons.
The workers are trained at the business.
