Moroccan tiles, Moorish tiles and mosaics are one of the most recognizable aspects of Moroccan art and architecture. The same traditional techniques covering walls of ancient mosques and palaces are still used today, and now can brighten up your home. Zellige art, a tradition of geometric mosaic, is generally considered to be part of the urban aesthetic tradition. Zellige mosaics are created from polychrome cut tiles, first appearing in the late twelfth century in the city of Fez.

The urban aesthetic tile design evolved into a flexible, complex, and legible artistic vocabulary that now dominates Moroccan urban art and craft. Creation, design, use, and appreciation of all art and craft-work is often done as an act of worship, imbuing Moroccan workmanship with a meditative feel. Historians speculate that zellige tile designs were originally inspired by Byzantine stone and glass mosaics, but concede a strong connection to the close cultural exchange between Morocco and Moorish Spain.

Zellige production continues today in more varieties than ever, and is continuing to expand to other parts of the world. Many of the traditional guilds have been replaced by cooperatives or family workshops. The Moroccan ceramic industry is renowned for a tradition of careful and pointed design, and legendary attention to detail. Moroccan tiles are increasingly popular in the U.S. both for the clearly exotic look that the traditional designs lend, and for the quietly modern elements of their geometricity. Every Moroccan tile we carry in store is glazed and water-proof with different patterns, shapes and colors.

Moroccan Tile Tips

Most of the Moroccan tiles that you will come across are made with square designs. These are made to fit in very well around any property. You can particularly find these tiles in sizes that are six to eight inches in length on every single side around the body of the tile. These tiles are appealing and useful but you have to be certain that you can plan ahead of time by figuring out exactly how many of these tiles you might require when getting something set up in your home. You should use this point when finding a way to get tiles ready in your home.

You will have to measure the total area of your flooring space and then compare that area with the area that a single tile will take in. You will then have to calculate the total number of tiles that can fit into that space based on the total area you have. You might need to round up the total number of tiles to the highest whole number just to give yourself a better idea of what you will require. There is always the option for you to cut one of these Moroccan tiles down in the event that one of these tiles ends up being a little larger in size than what your physical area can afford to maintain. You should use these measurements so you can figure out what you need and therefore get the best possible solution running for your tiles and your home decor needs. Moroccan Tile News
