Tadelakt, an ancient lime plaster finish, dates back to Romans, originated in Morocco. For millennia Tadelakt has been appreciated for its beauty, and function. Color Atelier Tadelakt is made in the U.S., considered for the type of substrates we typically encounter in modern construction.
We practice contemporary application techniques with stainless steel trowels instead of stones, also seal the tadelakt finish with besswaxes and water based sealers as opposed to soaps in the old times.
