STILTJE - Moell & Moell AB, Wilhelmsbergs gård, SE-27292 Simrishamn, SWEDEN.
Handmade tiles where the variation in color and texture makes every square meter a work of art.
For Stiltje's Zellig Collection we have taken out the most beautiful colors and the best "tile artists" to create our collection. The mosaic or tile is completely handmade according to traditional Moroccan methods and varies in color and texture. The tile comes on finished flats and is available in the sizes 5 × 5 cm and 10 × 10 cm. The flat is around 20 × 20 cm, the thickness of the flat varies but count on 1,5-2 cm for the setting.
The tiles have cut edges and it appears that chips are gone from the glaze. Zelligen is made of a special kind of clay with mineral grains that "pop up" after glazing and make these small holes in the glaze. The tiles ARE very uneven and the edges are NOT straight. Once the plate is set and joined, it becomes very beautiful and you must not stare blindly at the "defects", you are sensitive to this and want it perfect, we recommend that you use other materials than this completely unique.
We go through each plate we ship and damage and irregularities like this do NOT give rise to complaints. It is the natural charm of Zellige that does not go (and we do not want to) avoid.
The pictures show Zelligen so that you as a customer can easily imagine what color you want. Zellige is put tight but a few mm joint is needed.
