carreaux zellige

Where to buy zellige?

It's in Fes, Morocco, that should go the zellij amateur. That's where work the largest number of zellige artcraft men. They are experienced masters called « maâlems » that create complex zellige designs. Most are grouped in the Cooperative des Maalems zelligeurs.

In Paris, the tile studio Almaviva, specialised in rendition of ancient tiles (azulejos, Delft tiles, Italian majolica, Iznik tiles…) offers custom zelliges.

In Brussels, the Belgian designer Agnes Emery provides zellij imported from Morocco. They are sold in several shops (Brussels, Paris and London).
