description

zellige, zillij or zellij. all names for brilliantly colored terra cotta tiles from morocco. now available in stock at clé. moroccan zellige tiles are known for the sparkle and shine that comes from all their flaws and the wildly irregular shade variations of their drippy translucent glazes. an authentic zellige (pronounced zill-eejh') acquires its coloring from the historic clay body that is a rich terracotta, inherently forcing it's hue through all the glazes. if you're tired of the same-ol same-ol, then this tile born from a 10th century tile-making craft has arrived just in time for you!

our lovely zellige is all handmade in morocco. fired from the moroccan earth, in kilns fired by burning olive pits.

color variations? it isn't authentic zellige without wild variations of color and shade!

glaze variations? the zellige glazes have a lovely gloss surface that will have specks and flaws and undulations of surface. this varying and glossy finish can best be described as a "sequin-like" surface.

faq


general zellige terracotta tile

how much variation should i expect?

zelliges are created from natural glazes, pigments and terracotta clay. and they are fired in hand made kilns that are fueled using olive pits. all of this hand craft is what makes zellige so magically varied- tile to tile. please enjoy the extreme variation of color, shade and surface texture. if your project does not call out for highly varied tiles, then we suggest a different tile selection than zellige.

what is the standard grout joint size for zellige?

because all zellige is hand cut after firing into the individual tiles, they are crafted to allow for a very tight grout joint. please look at our resource/specification guide, on the zellige product page, for installation instructions.

where can i use zellige tiles?

please see the "usage section" on the zellige product page.

free shipping questions

does my zellige order qualify for your complementary shipping?

if your zellige tile order is 100 sf or more of in-stock tiles you are eligible for free shipping.

how are shipping fees treated if an order is comprised of a mix of materials, some stock cement and others not?

your shipping fees will be discounted proportionally to your in-stock zellige selection. for example, if your in-stock zellige makes up 25% of the order based on square footage, then discount the shipping fees by 25%.

how do i know if the ship-to address is in a high-zone area?

if you live on or near an island, peninsula or require a bridge or specially sized truck to reach your destination, you are in a high-zone area. also, if you live in an urban area that has extreme cartage fees such as boston, washington dc, or nyc, you are in a high-zone area.
