100% Handmade Moroccan Zellige
Our tile is hand crafted and consists of 100% handmade clay. Small imperfections such as tiny cracks and chips that add character to the rustic nature of the tile are not considered a defect.
All items are handmade in Mexico & Morocco; these tiles must be treated/considered in a similar manner to a natural product. Each tile is different from the next, as they are made by hand, specific for your project.
Please note the following features of Zellige mosaics are not defects, they are what constitute an authentic Zellige tile:
Shade variations are inherent in all kiln fired clay products. It is possible that the tiles you receive will be slightly different from the sample or display shown to you in the showroom – this is normal and the absolute beauty of Zellige.
Goods are sold subject to their normal and natural color variations, and samples given or displayed in the showroom or received by mail are to be considered indicative only.
Our tiles are suitable for use on residential traffic floors. Just like any handmade terracotta, depending on the traffic, special care may be needed. On floor surfaces, cleaning with a damp mop and mild soap is suggested. Always avoid the use of abrasive products containing bleach, ammonia and/or paint thinner. Never scrub with rough materials that may damage the surface. Our materials are intended for indoor use only.
The client accepts that as these are a man-made product each tile is different from the next. This means each tile will have a varying slip rating.

Suitable for use in shower walls and floors, steam showers, saunas. Using our Moroccan handmade Zellige tiles in a submerged water application such as a pool, fountain or water line, is to be at the discretion of the client.

Bespoke Studio will not be responsible for material failures resulting from use over a damaged, defective or improperly prepared surface and cannot be held responsible for replacement of tile used in areas with complete water submersion including, but not limited to pools & fountains.

Zellige tiles can be spaced several different ways based on design preference. The traditional method of laying Zellige tiles is laying them edge to edge (butt-jointed). To accommodate variations in tile sizes, wedge spacers can be used when needed to keep tile lines straight. There will be inconsistencies with grout joint thicknesses due to the handmade nature of the material. We recommend grout color to match or slightly lighter. Only un-sanded grout is recommended with our mosaic tiles (with the exception of the unglazed Tan-Tan & Octagon & Dot mosaic). Mapei Ultracolor Plus FA grout is recommended on all other tiles
Please treat all our tiles as a natural material, do not use any harsh abrasive cleaners on Bespoke Studio products. Please use a natural stone cleaner.
Regular normal maintenance cleaning is recommended using an appropriate pH-neutral cleaner (e.g. cleaners ordinarily suitable for natural stone & terrazzo floors). Never use abrasive cleaners, chemicals or bleach as over time these may affect the natural color pigments of the tiles’ surface. Before use of any cleaner, always read the product directions and carry-out a test clean on some un-laid pieces or in an inconspicuous area to determine desired effect and ease of application.
Bespoke Studio takes no responsibility to damages to the tiles caused by the client using abrasive cleaners, scouring pads and other strong cleaning products on our tile product.
