Zellige tiles are far from a new trend and have long been recoginized in the design community as a timeless, high quality material. While they fall under the category of Artisian/Handmade Tiles, our Zellige Collection desrves a page of it’s own! Zellige tiles are traditional Moroccan tiles, made of natural clay and glazed for a unique look. Handmade Zellige tiles add an elegance to any room in a home — bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and outdoor spaces. Our Zellige collection comes in a wide range of colors and patterns to fit different design styles, from classic to modern. Our Zellige represents the very best in rustic charm and are perfectly imperfect with uneven edges, variation in hue, tone, texture, color and thickness. They are extremely colorfull, easy to clean and maintain and resistant to moisture and heat making them ideal for high-traffic areas.

What could be considered the early iteration of the popular subway tile, Zellige dates back to the 10th century. These Moroccan tiles are the definition of handmade – using clay each tile is hand molded, hand cut, and hand glazed, meaning no two tiles are the same. Our Zellige line comes from artisians in Morrocco – most of the field tile and some of the mosaics are stocked in the U.S., while custom colored field and mosaics have longer lead times being made on an order by order basis in Morrocco.

The recent resurgence of zellige tiles appears in monochromatic hues, bringing texture and subtle movement to our interior spaces. Why do we love them? Because they are so versatile! With the variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, they can be seamlessly integrated into any style of home. From field tiles to mosaics, the colors and patterns are endless.
