New Terracotta

We are New Terracotta

Sophisticated simplicity executed in a pure manner

We are makers of handmade tiles in a human-scale factory, neither too big nor too small. We see ourselves as an artistic project blending technology craftsmanship and experimentation in an extraordinary, flexible factory where every product is made to measure.

The essence. New Terracotta is a profoundly Portuguese handmade ceramic project. The premise is simple: to merge the ancient techniques with contemporary aesthetics, offering a new dimension of the tile.

Our values.

At New Terracotta we stand for impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design.

Be simple.

We curate Naturalism.
We value the simplicity in our tiles, sometimes we even reach out for imperfection.

Honour origins.

We curate History.
We are all about preserving artisanal legacy, as we are heirs of a rich past based on ceramic tradition.

Make extraordinary.

We curate Quality.
We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and going the extra mile to ensure that our tiles are truly unique.


We will remain faithful to our artisanal model and our humanist values. The freedom to create, the constant quest for beautiful design, and the commitment to preserve the craft ensuring the transmission of know-how forge the uniqueness of New Terracotta. Our vocation is to be a creator of beautiful, perfect imperfect, contemporary yet timeless ceramics.

Contemporary artisans since 2014.

This family company has grown in size since its foundation in 2014 in Mortágua, when local clay was moulded by 2 artisans with simple tools in a space of a few square metres. Today, New Terracotta has a facility of more than 7,000 square metres where innovative inhouse-designed machinery help make the process a little easier. Still, it is the human touch and the passion for terracotta that ensures the quality and the soul of New Terracotta products.
