the sequins of the tile world

if you love the prized and imperfect color and surface variation in clé zellige, our 2"x2" unmounted zellige will make you ecstatic. for more detailed installations with added texture and interest, consider these smaller squares. these are also great for curved surfaces.

our classic white zellige tile is named weathered white because, even though it is a white terracotta tile of a singular color, that color is made up of dozens of shades of white including greys, creams, pinks, celadons and even blues. our weathered white is to white glazed terracotta tiles what opals are to white gemstones.

why we love zellige

clé has made it our goal to push the boundaries of surfaces by exploring tiles from around the world and introducing undiscovered materials that have been used in other countries and cultures, for centuries. probably the most defining characteristics of authentic moroccan zellige is its imperfections. its beautiful flaws and irregularities; its variation. most importantly, it is all created in the place that is the center of expertise for zellige craftsmanship where the art of chiseling the tiles to exact sizes, by hand has been passed down from generation to generation. every tile is hand-molded, hand-cut, and hand-glazed, which also means no two zellige tiles are exactly alike.

all zellige is not created equal

clé is committed to the craft of traditional ceramics and to the authenticity of the art form. we ensure that we always deliver a handcrafted, wood-fired product that embodies a true moroccan zellige surface. inherent color variations, surface marks and signature flaws (from olive pits exploding in the firing) are trademark characteristics of this ancient craft that we endeavor to maintain; in fact, it is a hallmark of true zellige that we believe is to be cherished. this is the reason why our clients seek out clé zellige above others. many manufacturers have opted for machine cut tiles as they are far less expensive to produce, however, the lack of artisanship comes through in the final installation. discover why we call zellige the “perfectly imperfect” tile.
