Ceramica JR Tile Factory

Sitting on a hillside just west of Tecate is the artisanal tile factory of Javier Ramirez called Ceramica JR.  Designers in Mexico and the US call on JR to provide custom made tile for the best homes in Mexico and California.

There are many tiles that are available for purchase without making a custom order, though the owner, Señor Ramirez will make most any custom size, color and design.  

Stop in, you might see something you just have to have in your own home, their products are not only beautiful, they are one-of-a-kind.

Day of the Dead

When we first learned of Day of the Dead, like most people from the US, we thought it was similar to Halloween.  That's a natural reaction, since Day of the Dead follows Halloween and has many items and images of skulls and skeletons.  Turns out, that's not at all the case.
