Modern Marrakesh Tile


Traditional Marrakesh Tile


Our special collection of  encaustic cement is hand-made by a special pressed tile process that was brought from Portugal to Morocco in the 14th century. A mixture of dry concrete, marble powder, cement and sand is packed into an iron mold. An iron stencil is placed on top of the mold and wet pigment is poured through a small mold into the shapes within the stencil. The wet pigment permeates the dry powders leaving the tile with a rich color pattern. The tile is submerged in water overnight and removed to dry into a durable 8” x 8” cement tile that is 3/4” thick. Every pattern in our collection may be ordered as seen online or in custom color combinations from Marrakesh Tile Color Chart. Marrakesh Tile is also available in solid colors as shown in the color chart. Slight color variations may occur, as each color batch is mixed by hand. This style of tile is used throughout Morocco for walls, floors, and patios. The complex geometric patterns combine beautifully marble, terra-cotta or zillij tile. Our collection features traditional  and modern Moroccan designs.
