Zellij gallery debuts Dam authentic Moroccan Tile

Playful, balanced Dam is spelled like the English word for a barrier holding back water, but it’s actually pronounced “tham.” Though the root meanings may be the same — to enclose or include — Zellij Gallery artisans named the pattern to describe the isolated dark squares “enclosed” by a sea of white diamonds. Dam is a lovely choice for your next authentic Moroccan tile project.
