The pattern on the beautiful Zellij Blue is derived from the stonework of the fountains of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. This pattern evokes the flow of water and the balance of open air and stone which renders a sense of subtle balance to visitors of this stunning modern Masjid.

Its name is a tribute to Zellij a distinctive style of tilework or mosaic art that is commonly found in Islamic architecture, particularly in North Africa - Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. Skilled artisans carefully cut and arranged each tile by hand, creating stunning and mesmerizing designs. The use of vibrant colors and the geometric precision of the patterns make zellij a unique and visually striking form of decorative art in Islamic architecture. The word "zillīj" (زليج) is derived from the verb "zalaja" (زَلَجَ) meaning "to slide."
