Moroccan home decor

http://www.prlog.org/10048919-moroccan-home-decor.jpg
The Goods: Morocco is known for its handmade works like carved doors and columns, hand-woven carpets, Moroccan mosaic tiles, wood lattice screens, encaustic cement tiles, zillij tile, terracotta tile, Bedouin tents, Berber ethnic rugs, zellige mosaic tiles, intricately painted tiles, lanterns, leather goods and silver tea sets.
Color: The North African country borders an ocean, but is also a desert oasis, resulting in a warm and cool color palette. Earth tones combined with various shades of blue, red, green, yellow and pink are common, as are texture and pattern in Moroccan inspired interior design and home decorating..

  2. 'The process has not varied for one millennium though conception and design has started using new technologies such as data processing".(Zellige craftmanship WIKIPEDIA/zellig

    We have discovered new techniques in processing zillij.My techniques are simple and dont require any particular expertise and results in quicker production and a smoother, lighter table top or panel as no concrete or iron are required. Furmah ,hand cut from any ready made tiles (7 to 8 mm thk) ,we prefer low sheen floor tiles (rustic or monochromatic color)
    Anybody can create zillij mosaic !!!
