“An artist who works with his hands, his head and his heart at the same time creates a masterpiece.”
– Amit Kalantri
A precious tradition of Moroccan culture, crafting zellige tile is a labor of love. Zellige artisanship has been passed along family lineages for generations, dating back to the 10th century. Our May 2019 Sock draws inspiration from the tessellating geometric and floral motifs that embellish the palaces, mosques, and fountains of Fez. Each clay tile or “biscuit” is meticulously shaped, kiln-fired, and glazed into a mini masterpiece unlike any other. While we can’t whisk you away to the Mediterranean to see it for yourself, we hope The Zellige is a little reminder of the artistic wonders of the world.
