Discover MATERIAL’s Handcrafted Zellige Collection

Discover MATERIAL’s Handcrafted Zellige Collection
Zellige tiles are handmade by skilled artisans using traditional techniques passed down through generations. Emerging in Morocco during the 10th century, Zellige has maintained its charming appeal, adorning the walls of residential spaces and landmarks. The glaze, color, and detailing of Zellige tiles evoke artisanal craftsmanship.

Creating this traditional ceramic tile starts with raw, lightly colored clay. The material is kneaded with water, shaped by hand, and sun-dried before undergoing an initial firing. Following this, each tile is individually glazed in a diverse range of colors and shades. The final step involves cutting the assortment into tiles of various shapes and sizes. The process imbues dynamic movement and organic texture–no two tiles are alike. 

MATERIAL’s Zellige Collection offers designers a canvas to infuse their personality and vibrancy in their designs. Harness the inherent beauty by embracing color, style, texture, finish, and cut trends to create captivating and unforgettable spaces.

At MATERIAL, we offer an array of Zellige styles—Classic 2x2 Mosaic, Nouveau Hexagon Tile, Petite Bullnose Tile, and Bejmat Tile—each is incredibly versatile for diverse applications. The glazed tile can be added as a kitchen backsplash, an element to bathroom walls, a tub surround, or as a beautiful accent to your flooring. Each piece is trimmed to create a uniform thickness, easing installation.
