HANDMADE IN MEXICO
Use this rustic vessel to hold coffee, spices, or salts—anything will feel special when it’s stored in this handmade jar.
We love the unusual shape and surprising finish of these jars made in Tonaltepec, a community in the Mixteca region of Oaxaca, whose inhabitants have kept their ancient ceramic tradition alive for centuries. These pottery pieces are among the few in the world that use organic plant pigments to decorate. The dark brown colour of the stain is achieved when a craftswoman applies an ink made from prickly pear and oak bark after taking them out of the 900°C oven.
