Handmade Moroccan Zellige 4x4 Pewter Grey Terracotta Tile is a type of traditional terracotta tile that is made by skilled artisans in Morocco. The tile is made using a blend of natural clay and sand, and then glazed with a shiny pewter grey finish. The glaze is applied by hand, which gives each tile a unique character and a slightly uneven surface.
The tile measures 4 inches by 4 inches (10 cm by 10 cm) and is relatively thin, with a thickness of around 0.5 inches (1.27 cm). The edges of the tile are slightly beveled, which gives them a rustic and handmade look. The tile has a low sheen and a slightly textured surface, which adds to its overall aesthetic appeal.
The Moroccan Zellige tile has been used for centuries in Moroccan architecture and is known for its durability, versatility, and beauty. It is ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-moisture areas, as well as for decorative accents and backsplashes. The tile is easy to install and can be cut to fit any space.
