The Zellige mosaic tables are one of the most notable examples of Custo Mosaic's work. These tables were painstakingly handcrafted by Moroccan craftsmen who are working diligently to ensure that their legacy is passed down to future generations. This table, which is in the shape of an oval, is an enigmatic work of art in which the details are important. It is distinguished by a design that was inspired by the native culture of Morocco and displays a wide range of colors. It was crafted using high-quality materials that are only available in Morocco.


Tables like this are crafted by skilled Moroccan artisans using zellige tiles that have been painted in tones that are in perfect harmony with one another. This table will make a wonderful housewarming present for your friends and family.


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 immersing in water for two days. Then artisans strive to remove any undesired rocks and other impurities from the clay before proceeding further. 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 get ready to be shipped. This is how Fes Artisans painstakingly make each of these breathtaking pieces of home decor.
