It's crafted to rapidly become the most cherished ceramic you own and the focal point of any display. Each unique piece of our pottery undergoes a meticulously time-consuming process of shaping, firing, and decoration. Your one-of-a-kind dining needs call for one-of-a-kind dinnerware.
Artists shaped and decorated this traditional Moroccan dinnerware by hand from ceramic clay. Using a paintbrush and an assortment of designs, each plate is painted by hand. Unique selling qualities for this pottery include not only its eye-catching color combinations and detailed designs, but also its durability and adaptability in the kitchen.
Due to their high resistance to heat, ceramics can be utilized in both conventional and microwave ovens. This can be washed in the dishwasher without worry. Our ceramics are resistant to abrasion and cleaning.
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.
