zelliges black (per sqm.)
Prices are per square meter.
We have tiles for both the floor and the wall. The traditional wall tiles are called ‘zelliges’. They are +- 1,2 cm thick, and 10cm wide and 10cm tall. The tiles are baked, glazed and painted by hand which causes beautiful tones of colors, and slight irregularities in shape and glaze. This is what makes the tiles so special.
These tiles are perfect for kitchens, toilets and bathroom walls. They are made with clay from the Fez-region within Morocco. We know all the tile-makers ourself, and have been working with the same factory for many years. This is why you should buy the tiles at Household Hardware.
Stock and delivery
We have the four colors in stock on regular base, but there are more options and colors available. Please note that the shipping of the varied colors will take longer (approximately 4-6 weeks) than the estimated time of the colors that we have in stock (+/-1 week).

The craftsmen, that start their training at a very young age to acquire the perfect skills, make the tiles of terra cotta from Fez, only from Fez. After making two rough versions, the zelliges are being baked the first time, then painted or colored and covered with enamel before baking them the second time. The ovens are very primitive but up till now there are no modern ovens that deliver the same quality of zelliges.
Finally the edges of the small tiles are being cut in a special radius, to make it possible placing the tiles in the right (tight) position on wall or floor.
