These particular tiles with natural pigmentation are from the region of Fes. They are set in cement and cut entirely by hand. Then assembled in a mosaic of tiles ,circled by a metal belt and sealed by a slab that gives a strong resilience to all weather conditions. Each table takes hours to complete The cities of Fes and Meknes remain the centers of this art.
