On a trip to Morocco recently I fell in love with the ubiquitous style of tiling known as Zelij (or Zillij, zilige, zillige...).
It is an intricate and detailed method of covering surfaces that at first glance looks straightforward, but on closer study is highly complex.
The word 'Zelij' doesn't describe just one pattern, but refers to the art of covering a surface with a limited set of geometrically organised tiles.
It is found everywhere in Morocco, from mediaeval religious colleges to modern public spaces.
I find it beguilling, inspiring and endlessly fascinating. This blog is a loose collection of interesting or useful Zelij related material I have found on the internet, as well as some photographs and drawings I made whilst in Morocco
