Unique pieces with silk sheen - not an old technique

It has a fine sheen and conveys a very special ambience: Tadelakt, the Moroccan lime plaster, was invented thousands of years ago by Berbers who used it to seal their cisterns.


Passed down from generation to generation, the technique was refined more and more, so that finally tadelakt was used as a glossy plaster even in the palaces of rulers. The secret of tadelakt and its universal applicability is based on the extreme compaction of the shell limestone used for it. Traditionally, the lime is applied to the wall with wooden boards, smoothed and then polished and compacted with an agate stone. The walls are then rubbed with black olive oil soap to create a water-resistant surface.

In this way, tadelakt resembles the Roman opus signium, whereby this lime screed, partly consisting of coarser stones, was given a marble-like, water-resistant surface by linseed oil, lime slaked in red wine, wax or tar. Tadelakt can be dyed with natural pigments in all colours and gets a high decorative touch. Bathtubs, washbasins, walls, floors, tables ... the design possibilities with tadelakt are almost unlimited.

Today, Tadelakt is used worldwide to individually design high-quality bathrooms, wellness areas, kitchens and living rooms. The natural material creates unique one-of-a-kind pieces, because no wall, no washbasin, no bathtub is like the other.
