Bejmat Orientation - How to Lay your Tiles

Perhaps one of the most recognisable images of our zellige bejmat tiles has been the iconic Richmond residential project by Studio Ezra which featured our EZR1445 in Avocado herringbone pattern as a kitchen splashback. We are often inundated with enquiries about our “herringbone Moroccan tiles” however, did you know that the bejmat (rectangular bricks) are in fact brought in loose. This means you have complete freedom to be creative and lay them however you wish.


Another idea, for those of you who dare to be bold, is to mix two different brick colours together and in doing so, create a gorgeous pattern. Check out the pic below for some inspo. It's all about what works the best in the space at hand. It's also important to keep in mind that bejmat tiles are thicker than our normal zellige mosaics and 10x10cm square tiles. Whilst the other zellige tiles have a thickness os about 10mm, the bejmat bricks are about 18mm thick. This is where our skinny bejmat works perfectly!


We love to see our client's get creative
