3. How are Zellige tiles made?

Zellige tiles are handmade by artisans using traditional methods. The process involves several steps:

  • Terracotta clay is extracted, cleaned, and mixed with water to create a moldable paste.
  • The clay is pressed into molds to create the desired shape (such as squares or hexagons).
  • Once dry, the tiles are fired in a kiln at high temperatures, which gives them strength and durability.
  • The tiles are then glazed with pigmented glaze, creating a vibrant color and reflective surface.
  • After a second firing process, the tiles are carefully sorted and inspected for quality.

4. How do I install Zellige tiles?

Installing Zellige tiles requires some care and attention to detail. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Make sure your surface is clean, flat, and dry before installation.
  • Apply a high-quality tile adhesive to the back of each tile using a notched trowel.
  • Press the tiles firmly onto the surface, maintaining consistent spacing between them.
  • Use tile spacers if needed to ensure even grout lines.
  • Once the adhesive has set, remove any excess with a damp sponge.
  • Apply grout to the joints, making sure not to fill any intentional gaps in the design.
  • Wipe off any excess grout and allow it to dry before sealing the tiles with a suitable sealer.

Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for specific products and consult a professional if you're unsure about any aspect of the installation process.
