Zellige tiles are a traditional artisanal tile made in Morocco. Made from clay, zellige tiles are a type of terracotta tile with a glazed finish. They are known for their chic, artisanal look. Each zellige tile is handmade, meaning no two tiles are alike.

Installing zellige tiles is best left to the professionals due to the fragile nature of the Moroccan tile. To install zellige tiles, it’s important to soak the tile before laying them due to their porous nature. You should lay the tiles close together with minimal grout space in between –– that’s the classic zellige tile look.

Zellige tiles are on the expensive side since they are a special item handmade in Morocco. If you’re seeking a more affordable, budget-friendly option, browse our range of zellige-look tiles made from ceramic, porcelain, and terracotta.

You should use grout to lay zellige tiles; however, do not create large grout lines in between each tile. Zellige tiles are typically laid very closely together so that there is minimal grout in between.

To clean zellige tiles, we recommend using a soft, microfiber cloth and a gentle, non-acidic household cleaner or water. Do not use harsh chemicals or rough-textured items to clean the tiles, since they can damage their surface.

In Arabic, the word ‘zellige’ comes from zillij, which means ‘to slide’. The origin of the word refers to the smooth, glossy surface of these Moroccan tiles.
