    • Indoor or outdoor use

    Story Behind the Art:
    "It's more than tile, it's art." That simple statement is what sets the craftsmanship of Moroccan Mosaic apart from the rest. Based in the small city of Sale, Moroccan Mosaic is a family business going back 4 generations. When Samad, the current head of the business graduated from university in New York, he had little interest in the family business. But on a return trip home, he saw that the business was not doing well and set about reviving it. One important change he made was introducing black, grey, and white designs to appeal to American and European customers. It worked. When he started, they employed 2 workers and now they have nearly 80 on staff. The workshop itself is fairly simple, and the techniques used to create the tiles are steeped in tradition. Some modern equipment is available, though the workers prefer to use the more rustic tools. The creative process is time intensive and done by hand, as Samad insists on no corners be cut or production be rushed. Environmentally responsible and resource efficient, no chemicals are used at any step. For example, colors used come from nature -- literally. Green comes from mint leaves, orange from orange peel, and black from charcoal. The tiles themselves are a simple mixture of cement, sand, and granite powder. Moroccan Mosaic hires only local workers, teaching them a valued skill as well as paying them fair wages. Samad's goals for his business are to share the tradition of gorgeous Moroccan tile, grow the business, and employ more and more workers.

      We used these tiles on the wall behind our wood stove and they look beautiful! My husband installed them and has a lot of experience with tile as a builder and he said they were easier to cut and work with than he thought they would be but because of the materials and slight variations in each tile they are more difficult than run of the mill tiles.

      Very pretty, I will use them around my fireplace. They arrived as expected, no cracked or broken tiles. I just purchased another box to ensure I have enough to complete the project. the geometric shape alines beautifully... not the case with some cheaper tiles I purchased.

      The tile arrived in a timely manner, well packaged. We used it on our guest bathroom floor along with black slate subway tile in the shower. The tile looks amazing and gives a classic b&w appeal.

      These are very beautiful tiles. The only problem is with the shipping. Most of them arrived damaged and had to be resent. The resent ones were also damaged but we were able to finish the job with just enough to tile our fireplace.

      I like the surface texture of these tiles. They are not uneven, but rather have a slight relief where the paint is applied thicker in the dark areas. Handle with care! They are brittle.

      They are more grey than black and the toles have a grey tint on the white like it’s dirty.
