Tadelakt is a traditional Moroccan wall finish originating in the Marrakech Region; it is found in the hammams, the Moroccan steam baths, and in the riads of Marrakech. It has a smooth appearance, slightly shiny like Marmorino Carrara, but thicker and less textured. It is very durable and quite water-resistant, but breathable.
About our Tadelakt…
Stucco Italiano Tadelakt is manufactured in Italy by Giovanni Polistena. Giovanni’s intentions in developing this Moroccan-style plaster were to remain entirely faithful to the look, feel, and chemical makeup of the original Moroccan Tadelakt, while creating a more sophisticated, user-friendly product. Enlisting the help and guidance of experienced installers, Giovanni spent many months formulating the perfect blend of natural limes, clays, and sands.
Our version of the classic Moroccan material is now preferred by many installers for it’s beauty, ease of installation, and ability to resist delaminating/detaching from the surface as plasters of this nature often do in the hands of the most expert installers. The results speak for themselves – Stucco Italiano Tadelakt is the equal to its Moroccan counterpart in look and durability, and is superior in ease of application, price, and availability.
Composition: lime powder, slightly hydraulic, with stone granules of variable thickness, special additives to facilitate application by aiding in adhesion and reducing cracking.
