Bring this awe-inspiring Mosaic Wall-hanging with designs full of dazzling colors into your home and dive into the sentimental and wistful allure that Moroccan history has to offer. The wall art is crafted by hand using Morocco's well-known and centuries-old zellige skill, and as a result, it exudes a magnificent allure that enhances the attractiveness of the space in which it is displayed. 300 tiles come together to create this glamorous work of art. It is encased in an iron frame, which not only gives it a bold finishing touch but also assures that it will last for a long time.
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 immersing in water for two days. Then artisans strive to remove any undesired rocks and other impurities from the clay before proceeding further. 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 get ready to be shipped. This is how Fes Artisans painstakingly make each of these breathtaking pieces of home decor.
