A timeless mosaic composed of different angular shapes, symbols and colors, Moroccan Zellige is now becoming very popular among individuals and professionals around the world.
History of marrocan Zellige
The art of zellige appeared in Morocco more than a millennium ago. Of Roman inspiration, it is one of the jewels of Moorish and Berber architecture.
Historical use is the ornament of palaces, spiritual places, hammams and fountains.
The geometric and colorful assembly of the tesserae, these small pieces of enamelled terracotta cut into different shapes, is done according to complex patterns and with spiritual meanings.
Symbolically, the union of colors, shapes and rhythms pays homage to the beauty of the universe and invites meditation.
The raw material of the zellige is the natural clay of Fez, extremely resistant and unique in its kind.
The molding is done piece by piece using templates, the clay is dried in the open air and cooked over a wood fire.
The work of traditional zellige is carried out by master craftsmen who cut it manually to obtain the desired shapes.
