Zellige or zellij tiles are among the oldest tiles in the world and at Villa Tiles we are proud to offer these unique handmade tiles from Fez in Morocco. The Zellige tiles are original Moroccan tiles and were developed back in the 12th century as the basic material for mosaics that were used to decorate mosques and palaces. For this reason, the handmade zellige tiles from Villa are still to this day hand-hewn after production. The handmade zellige tiles are terracotta tiles and are therefore fired before and after the glaze is laid on the zellige tile. The Zellige tiles are available both with and without glaze. At Villa Handmade Tiles you will find the unglazed handmade zellige tiles under floor tiles and terracotta tiles.
The zellige tiles are however particularly known for the many beautiful colours and at Villa Handmade Tiles we have a nice assortment of the original zellige tiles in several sizes and shapes. This goes for the hand-shaped zellige tiles but not for the traditional hand-hewn zellige tile. The traditionally hand-hewn zellige tiles are only available in sizes up to 10x10 cm.
All prices are net retail prices per m2, DKK incl. VAT

Original Zellige tiles, handcrafted by skilled craftsmen. One of the oldest tiles still manufactured.
Ca. 15x15 cm, approx. thickness 15 mm, glazed terracotta. Available in 16 colors.
Original handmade terracotta tiles from the city of Fez in Morocco. Zellige tiles are manufactured using old handed down techniques, dating back to medieval times. Each tile is unique and the glazed surface is made by dipping the tile in the glaze by hand to achive the ideal unique appearance. No tile is identical and unevenness, changes in the glaze and minor spots are part of the expression.
DA: Original Zellige flise, fremstillet i hånden. Verdens ældste flisetype.
Ca. 15 x15 cm, ca. tykkelse 15 mm, glaseret terracotta
Original håndlavet terrakotta flise fra byen Fez i Marokko. Zellige flisen, som den hedder originalt, bliver lavet efter gamle overleverede teknikker, som daterer helt tilbage til middelalderen. Hver flise er unik i overflade glaseringen, idet de bliver dyppet i hånden i glasuren for at opnå den helt unikke changering. Alle fliser har det helt særegne, at der ikke findes to helt identiske fliser. Dette betyder at ujævnheder, changering i glasuren samt mindre pletter er en del af udtrykket.
