The tadelakt has for many years crossed the Mediterranean to seduce Europeans. Update on a beautiful and ecological coating. Originally from Morocco and more particularly from Marrakech, tadelakt is traditionally used in hammams , the old water tanks and the riad bathrooms . Moisture-resistant lime plaster, this coating is particularly suitablefor damp rooms . Its application is delicate and requires long years of training followed by Moroccan craftsmen called maalems.However, individuals can apply it themselves but the result is not guaranteed! The tourist craze for Morocco has made Westerners discover this coating, which today favors it. This is why many large decoration brands offer tadelakts, more or less close to the traditional composition. The real tadelakt is made from lime from Marrakech. Some products imitate tadelakt like stucco but never arrive at the same rendering. On the aesthetic side, the tadelakt is characterized by its shine and smoothness of its touch. Another characteristic, the passage of the trowel remains visible for an incomparable visual effect. Particularly interesting in a bathroom, tadelakt is found today in all rooms of the house such as the living room or the entrance for example. But it can also be coated with exterior walls and floors. On the composition side, this coating is completely ecological and respectful of the environment. Lime from Marrakech is a natural product. There is therefore no toxic product entering into the composition of tadelakt and therefore no dangerous emanation. In addition, this coating lets the wall breathe and naturally regulates the humidity of the room. The real tadelakt is not easy to find. Think of the Zolpan and Perfectino brands for example. Some big brands like Castorama also offer coatings imitating tadelakt. To discover in pictures…
