Zellige making is considered an art, the art is transmitted from generation to generation by master craftsmen.

After grinding and washing the clay to remove impurities, the skilled craftsmen put the tab in wooden frames to dry.

The clay is flattened by hand: “To eliminate gas bubbles and make their shape flat and rigid”. Then they cut the manual paw in square form, hexagon, rectangle, octagon or other forms according to customers’ requests.
