Puebla Mortar and Pestle
HANDMADE IN MEXICO
A functional and beautiful mortar and pestle, hand carved from lava rock and Tazalam wood.
Volcanic rock has been used in Mexican kitchens since pre-Columbian times, and this is a classic example of a traditional molcajete, used to grind and crush ingredients.
This talented design collective based in Mexico City works with artisans from several states in the country to create 100% handmade objects for the home with the highest quality materials, highlighting a beautiful craft tradition.
Combining the talents of expert woodworkers from Veracruz and Mérida along with stone carvers from Puebla, the designers of these products are inspired by the historical, natural and primitive roots of the Mexican people, along with the beauty of the raw native materials––Guayacán and Tzalam woods, lava rock and marble.
