These elegant and sophisticated sinks are imported from Morocco. These sinks are traditional in design and construction in Morocco. This piece of art is well-known for its intricate patterns and designs of sea and fish scales, as well as its bright rose-gold colors, which come from the sun in Morocco. Add a touch of Moroccan style to your bathroom with this sink from Morocco.
Each basin is made by hand by a different artist in Morocco, thus there will be subtle variations between the bowl you receive and the one pictured. The bowl of the sink, which is part of the vanity unit, extends over the surface of the counter. Since the sink and countertop are one sleek unit, the overall look is one of harmony and minimalism. The built-in washbasins are great for the kitchen or bathroom because they are easy to use and clean.
Unlike mass-produced sinks, these Moroccan sinks are made by hand and won't chip or peel soon after installation. The size of the sink drain is standard. It can be used as a drop-in under-mount sink, an overtop sink, or a sink for the countertop. A thick layer of glaze ensures their longevity. They will be the showpiece of your bathroom or kitchen, and for good reason: these sinks are beautiful.
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 being immersed in water for two days. Then, the artists try to get rid of any rocks or other things that don't belong in the clay before moving on. 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 are ready to be shipped. This is how Fes artisans painstakingly make each of these breathtaking pieces of home decor.
