Moroccan Tiles

Can anyone make a recommendation of a tile factory or distributor? Looking for moorish/Moroccan authentic tikes that can be shipped to US. Thanks!

There are many outlets throughout the country but here is a google link for some distributors and manufacturers:

https://www.google.co.ma/#hl=en&tbo=d&sclient=psy-ab&q=zellige+tiles&oq=zellige&gs_l=hp.1.1.0l4.18910.18910.2.22348.1.1.0.0.0.0.228.228.2-1.1.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.1.ymSj5JtMg-4&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.41018144,d.d2k&fp=1826594e6ebf33ae&biw=973&bih=534

Googling "zellige" (also spelt "zellij") or "carelage" (the Arabic and French names) will give more results. Many people prefer tiles from Fes but Marrakech (the forum you have posted on) acts as a clearing house for items produced all over Morocco.

Did not check the above link, but can inform you that there are factories which export tiles, just outside Marrakech. Have visited one of them, but then gave up the idea of exporting them for commercial purposes to Europe, the deciding factor was the weight.

Unfortunately cannot find their business card, sorry. It was my hotel who found the factory for me.
