Handmade Zellige Tile - El Haj

  • This super-chic glazed terracotta 'El Haj' tile was designed in collaboration with artist and architech Marie Bastide. The man in this tile is wearing the traditional Moroccan djellaba, a long and loose type of robe that is often worn over the top of other clothes. It has long sleeves and a pointed hood to provide shade in the sun and keeps the warmth in the cold.


    The tile piece will add loads of style and a worldly vibe to your home. The tile sits in a metal frame with a hook on the back. It can be hung on the wall or placed on a shelf or coffee table. Mix and match with other tiles for greater impact.


    Zelart combines Zellige artwork, a traditional Moroccan handicraft technique of tilework, with modern artistic styles. The result- a beautiful representation of today’s Morocco. Each tile is 100% handmade and crafted in collaboration with local master Zellige artisans. The art of Zellige is transferred from generation to generation, with training starting at childhood.
