Moroccan Tiles: Transform Your Home with Exotic Elegance

Craving a touch of the exotic in your home? Look no further than the artisanal beauty of Moroccan tiles. These handcrafted treasures, steeped in centuries of tradition, will elevate any space with their vibrant colours, intricate patterns, and unique textures.

Moroccan tiles boast a history as vibrant as their colours. Their origins trace back to the 10th century, inspired by the intricate mosaics of the Roman and Byzantine empires. Islamic artistic traditions, which emphasised geometric patterns and abstract forms, heavily influenced their development.

Skilled artisans in the Moroccan city of Fez became renowned for their mastery of Zellige tile work. Zellige tiles are individually chiseled from clay, then glazed and fired in kilns. The result is a stunning mosaic of small tiles, each with subtle variations in color and texture.

Moroccan tile designs evolved over the centuries. Early palettes were limited to natural earth tones, but blues, greens, yellows, and eventually reds expanded the possibilities. Today, Moroccan tiles grace palaces, mosques, homes, and modern spaces worldwide, their timeless beauty a testament to a rich artistic heritage.

  • Vibrant Color Palettes: Moroccan tiles burst with saturated colors inspired by the desert, the ocean, and lush landscapes.
  • Intricate Designs: Traditional geometric patterns, floral motifs, and mesmerizing repetitions create a captivating visual experience.
