Who we are
We’re a dedicated team of people with a passion to deliver the best clay products from across the globe, to Indian customers.
WHat we do
We travel across the country and the globe in search of the best clay products. We perform a thorough quality check and a feasibility study of the products, before offering them to terracotta enthusiasts.
Why we do
Apart from our passion of being a part of the green construction industry, we also want to bring back terracotta in style.
Our company was founded in 2010, in Chennai. Soon afterward, we established our footprints in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Bombay, Pune, and Surat.
Our promoters have more than 20 years of experience in the industry. This exposure has led us to a deeper understanding of the Indian clay product market. We’ve been the pioneers in changing people’s attitudes towards terracotta products- from being an unsophisticated product to a sophisticated lifestyle choice.
In the past 8 years, we’ve delivered clay products to several organizations and individuals. This includes religious institutions, The Chennai Metro Rail; The National Academy of Customs, Excise & Narcotics; and several reputed private builders. We also advice construction companies and professionals in choosing the right clay products for their projects.
We’re the pioneers in the Indian terracotta market. Our co-founder coined the term Nuvocotto, by joining two simple terms, which were invented by him- ‘nuvo’ referring to ‘new’ and ‘cotto’ referring to ‘terracotta.‘ Thus, Nuvocotto stands for new terracotta, fresh terracotta, and smarter terracotta. We’re committed to timely delivery of materials at all locations across the country.
Terracotta in India
Traditionally in India, clay products were made by hand. A German missionary was the first one to introduce organized clay production in Mangalore. The Mangalore Tiles were established in 1860. Since then, the clay industry in India has grown rapidly.
