Variegato Lombardo

The Varicoloured Variegato Lombard was traditionally used between the 16th and 20th centuries in the areas of Lombardy, Piedmont and Canton Ticino to pave both homes and historic homes. The characteristic of this floor is the contemporary presence in the tiles of two clays of different composition, which after cooking show distinctly red-orange and white-straw colored colors. The veins are produced by the manipulation of two clay mixed separately and mixed in layers with special techniques.  The clay is printed manually in wood molds after the mixing process and is processed in such a way that the desired pattern and color scheme are created. Each tile is then dried in a drying room (minimum 3 days depending on the thickness of the tile) after which the tile is baked in a temperature of > 1200 degrees. The duration of the baking process is on average 3 to 5 days after which the tile is slowly cooled down. The adhered Lombard tile is grounded flat after baking. This also applies to the side surfaces (calibrate), making the adhered Lombard completely seamless and in combination with other tiles that have undergone the same operations. Desirable patterns and color combinations are possible.
