Traditional Zellij consists of individually shaped and hand cut tesserae or ‘furmah’ - chips of glazed terra cotta tile-work which are set into a plaster base. Modern Zellij includes incredibly vibrant and rich colours in increasingly complex, individually varied patterns set in epoxy.
Deeply set in the fabric of Moroccan architecture, the art of Zellij has been used for hundreds of years to decorate homes as a statement of luxury and sophistication. This unique art form developed out of necessity for Moorish artists who desired to create spatial decorations without depicting living things.
The collection of Zellij tile from Bespoke Tile & Stone by Earp Bros includes fish scale, herringbone, honeycomb and geometric patterns, complemented by traditional square Zellij and Bijmat paving.
