The history of the caquinhos floors of paulistas house from fellow blogger eleganciadascoisas

The house my mom has the porch floor mosaic made with this like so many other houses of São Paulo 40/50. I love floor caquinhos red ceramic speckled black and yellow shards. I found a text that tells the history of fashion. The author is the Civil Engineer Manoel Henrique Campos Botelho which authorized its publication here.

The mystery of the marketing of broken tiles
