Morocco in Tiles

It’s been a while since I’ve done a photo-heavy post so I thought I’d focus on one of my most favorite parts of Moroccan sites – the amazing zellij tile designs. Zellij refers to a type of terra cotta tilework that is covered with enamel in the form of chips set into plaster- and they can be seen on everything from thousand-year-old remains to newly designed buildings.  And each design showcases the most amazing patterns and colors. I just can’t get enough of them. Hope you enjoy!
