This genuine, hand-made kitchenware in the North African style is a crucial part of the Moroccan way of life. Each tagine is crafted by hand from lead-free ceramic. Besides being a work of art in its own right, this handmade Moroccan item serves a practical purpose as well. The unique design of the tagine makes it perfect for presenting gourmet meals.
An expansive, shallow, round dish serves as the base, which can be used in a variety of ways. The steam can circulate, condense, and reach the meal thanks to the cone-shaped cap. A deeper flavor can be progressively incorporated into meats, veggies, and grains.
As an added bonus, the tagine can be used in either the oven or the dishwasher. Our crockery is impervious to wear and tear from washing and scrubbing.
Handcrafted details cause small alterations to color, size, and design.
The clay used for making these tiles is a substance that can only be found in Fes City, in a location known as "Ben Jellik." Then the clay is brought to a different location and left to dry for 20 days. After breaking it into little pieces with a big hammer when it is dry, they are left to dry again for an entire day before being immersed in water for two days. Then, the artists try to get rid of any rocks or other things that don't belong in the clay before moving on. Then the processed clay is used to make the nuanced patterns, depending on where the zellige would be used. Due to the amount of sunlight this place gets, this kind of process can only happen in Fes.
The processed clay is then baked in the oven for 8 hours at 2000 °C. Then the natural colors are used to paint the surface with vivid detailing. After that, the products are coated with shiny material and glazed for another 8 hours to give them a sturdy texture. The Zellige can withstand any temperature, and the colors remain long-lasting.
In the last stage, the zellige is coated with "La Resin" and flipped downwards to dry. After drying, the products are ready to be shipped. This is how Fes artisans painstakingly make each of these breathtaking pieces of home decor.
