Tadelakt is a waterproof lime plaster sealed with olive oil soap and polished with a stone. Soft to the touch and warm to the eye, it can seamlessly cover walls, sinks, showers, and even bathtubs. One of few natural materials appropriate for wet areas, tadelakt is easy to clean and highly resistant to mildew.
Originally from Marrakech, tadelakt has stood the tests of time in traditional North African hammams and royal palaces. As it has been passed down from master to apprentice for centuries, tadelakt has become one of the most beautiful hand crafted natural finishes on earth.
Artesano is proud to be one of the few plastering companies in the U.S. that have traveled to Morocco to learn this extraordinary technique.
