Zellige Fliesen

The production of Zellige tiles follows a centuries-old tradition: the kneaded clay is spread into prefabricated lattice molds and pre-dried in the sun. The second step involves cutting the still soft material into the desired tile size. The tiles are fired in large, traditional clay kilns. And first as blanks and again after the application of the colored glaze. All this is done by hand. And so no two Zellige tiles are exactly alike.

It is precisely the small irregularities and bubbles in the glaze that make the incidence of light unique. Sometimes a tile shimmers like silk, sometimes like mother-of-pearl, sometimes almost like metal. Iridescent colors create a vibrancy that industrially produced plain tiles can never have. And: Cellular tiles can be laid without joints thanks to a sophisticated cutting technique. The tiles are cut at an angle, leaving a later invisible recess for the adhesive mortar.

Anyone who has visited the Alhambra in Granada knows one of the most beautiful examples of the Zellij or Zellige (pronounced: Dschiliesch). A center of this traditional oriental tile art is the Moroccan royal city of Fez. Here, the terracotta tiles are hewn into many individual elements and assembled into impressive mosaics. Casa-Moro saves zellije lovers the trouble of a trip to distant Morocco. In our Garden category, you will discover a wide range of handcrafted mosaic tables and mosaic fountains. With these furniture and decorative objects you give your garden, your terrace a touch of the Orient.
