Mosaic is a form of decorative art in which small tiles or fragments of tile are used to create a pattern or picture. The process is known as “Zelij” in North Africa, also spelled zellig or “zilij”. All of the Moroccan Mosaic Zelij is produced in the historic city of Fez. Our Moroccan mosaic artisan begins by hand-cutting the 4″x4″ square piece of mosaic tile into the desired shape. Then, just like a puzzle, each piece of mosaic Zellij is placed face down to create the mosaic pattern. The Moroccan mosaic is sold by the foot, in 12″x12″ square or custom sizes.
