Saltillo tile is a hand made tile imported from a Mexican city with the same name Saltillo in Coahuila, Mexico.
Saltillo tile it is made of clay. This type of floor covering was introduced by the Spaniards to Mexico.
Here in USA  over years this saltillo tile has been used in the southern part of USA and lately traveling up north.
Saltillo tile is used because it's raw and hand made shape, the process of making the tile by hand and dried to the sun allow even to have animal paw prints on the tile.
Saltillo tile is porous and  it will suck all liquids, if not properly sealed it will have all sorts of stains.
Once the saltillo tile is sealed and properly  maintain will give the floor the warm southern look, it is durable and strong tile.
Due to it's convex shape, it's hard to walk on it on daily basis, specially for older people.
I often hear different opinions about saltillo floor tile, some people love saltillo tile, some others hate it.

When people hate it there is only one way to approach this tile and is the most fear choice for the " do it yourself homeowner "or even tile setters.They just hate to remove Mexican Orange saltillo tile.
The main reason it's that saltillo tile will crumble in little pieces making even worse the task of removing this Mexican saltillo tile.
Another reason is it's weight, we are talking about 10 lb per Sq Ft plus the thick mortar bed and they normally use 1/2" grout lines filled in most cases with thinset or tile mortar, making this saltillo tile one of the hardest tiles there is to remove.
