Our steps

STEP : 1

After grinding and washing the clay to remove impurities, the skilled craftsmen put the tab in wooden frames to dry.

STEP : 2

The clay is flattened by hand: “To eliminate gas bubbles and make their shape flat and rigid”. Then they cut the manual paw in square form, hexagon, rectangle, octagon or other forms according to customers' requests.

STEP : 3

The clay tiles are dried in the sun in a natural way, then reach 10% of vaporization of the body of water.

STEP : 4

A skilled worker applies the colors to the top of the dry tiles. “They don’t use spray guns because we lose the traditional look of colors”.

STEP : 5

The colored tiles are placed in a triangle shape in a natural wood oven. The heat circulates unevenly respecting the order of the temperatures from bottom to top (White-cloud then the turquoise then the Blue then the Black and in the end the Dark Green color). This algorithm gives each tile slightly different colors from neighboring tiles.

STEP : 6

Some colors like Snow-white and Dark Gray require shielding in a gas oven because they are very fragile to the traditional fumes and to the variations of the temperatures.

STEP : 7

The craftsmen is manual drawing on the brut Zellige 11cmX11cm, one by one the cut pattern. This extraordinary opportunitie, allow us to draw any pattern.

STEP : 8

After tracing, the manual cutting of the patterns one by one .

STEP : 9

Zellige tiles are rough and have unequal edges that’s why qualified operators switch to manual cutting with a hammer (MENKACHE); tiles in 10cm X 10cm, 05cm X 05cm or other shapes according to the order in progress, This extraordinary works, allow us to draw any pattern.

STEP : 10

The most delicate operation is when the “man-tiler” who is qualified in Zellige places the cut pieces according to the geometric architecture.

STEP : 11

The enameled face of the tiles is placed in contact with the ground and the back of the tiles at the top then they are set on a special mortar to dry and after it dries we remove the panels to have the shape of Moroccan Mosaic Tiles.

STEP : 12

Samples in Zellige 05cm X 05cm Mosaic on fiberglass nets (Mosaic flexible), in our Showroom.

STEP : 13

The final results are all objects of art, these different types of shaped pieces that will be assembled to create the patterns in zellige. (Mosaic Rigid Panels).
