The Benefits of Using Zellige Tiles
Zellige tile is all about rustic charm. A Moroccan tile art form dating back 1,000 years, Zellige and Bejmat tiles celebrate the natural beauty of the clay.
What is Zellige Tile?
Unlike machined tile, exquisite Zellige and Bejmat tiles by Villa Lagoon Tile are molded, cut, and glazed entirely by hand by skilled artisans in Fez, Morocco. They use local clays fired in kilns fueled by olive pits, then finished with an enamel glaze.
Each Zellige tile is unique, with variations in color, edging, and shape. Like the irregularities in natural wood grain or the tiny air bubbles in hand-blown glass, it is these perfect imperfections for which Zellige is known.
Where Can Zellige Tile Be Installed?
Zellige tile can be installed anywhere that regular tile is installed in residential and commercial spaces. The tiles are available in various colors, patterns, and sizes, making them a versatile option for any design scheme.
Can Zellige Tiles Be Installed Outdoors?
Zellige can be installed outdoors as long as they are adhered to and appropriately grouted.

One way to make your bathroom go from ‘drab’ to ‘fab?’ Pair unexpected colors! Here, our Zellige Bejmat Jadeite is the dominant color enhanced by the accent color of the red berry rug.
Colors of nature, like our Zellige in Evergreen, create a calm, nourishing look and feel to any space.
Pastels are perfect for creating a warm, soothing feeling in any space. Our Zellige in Peony looks amazing in applications such as shower walls, backsplashes, and accent walls.
The shade of blue in our Mariana Blue Zellige can be bold and powerful or soft and serene. It’s all up to your design imagination!
