In the world of Moroccan zellige tiles, Le Mosaiste stands for authenticity and quality. Le Mosaiste is French and literally means ‘the mosaic maker’, which is a trade the Farhi family has been in for several generations. The name was chosen, says Miloud Farhi, who is a maâlem (Ar. master artisan) himself, because the select group of artisans at Le Mosaiste performs at the highest levels of Moorish craftsmanship to produce mosaic masterpieces frequently used in hammam style bathrooms and ultra-custom kitchens.
LE MOSAISTE proudly presents the world’s most exclusive and comprehensive selection of handcrafted Moroccan and Arabesque mosaic tile designs, ranging from contemporary simplicity to traditional complexity. You can now fully explore this glorious pillar of Mediterranean design and capture the ethereal beauty that has been hidden away for so many centuries. What many believed to have been lost has finally been rediscovered and revived.
LE MOSAISTE works together with architects, interior designers, contractors/builders, dealers, and home owners on a multitude of projects, ranging from simply supplying smaller private remodels with product to large-scale commercial installations. The company employs a select group of only the most skilled artisans near Casablanca, Morocco, handling production, distribution, design services and all international installations outside of the U.S. In addition it has an established network of Moroccan installers residing within the U.S. to handle domestic projects requiring timely and precise installations to achieve the authentic Moroccan look.
LE MOSAISTE was founded in 2005 to adequately present the zenith of Moorish craftsmanship to cultivated people across the Western World and beyond. This unprecedented effort has now finally come to fruition after years of extensive research and tireless compilation of the rarest and most exclusive Moorish tile designs. It is the vision of LE MOSAISTE to both honor historic craftsmanship and to produce innovative designs in harmony with current architecture. Frequently in conjunction with Mediterranean architecture, LE MOSAISTE tiles distinctly unite exotic, elegant, and rustic aspects of design, adding a deep sense of character and sophistication to many structures and living spaces.
