Spice up a monotone home with the addition of colorful pottery! RusticaGift and Pottery offers old world style Mexican Talavera Pottery and Mayolica Pottery (coming from two different studios) . The earthenwares are created using old world traditions which date back hundreds of years. Originally created by the monks of La Reyna de la Talavera, Spain, hence the name.
The website, rusticagift.com, offers handcrafted artisan goods: talavera and majolica pottery from Mexico, hand-finished pewter and other gift items. Rustica delivers social impact in two critical ways: they help support the centuries-old craft of these authentic artisans, and they donate a portion of proceeds to a children’s shelter program in the artisan community: Ipoderac.org. This helps put the money back into the community where it belongs.
The pottery is functional and pretty, vibrantly hand painted and no two pieces alike. What makes it even better is it’s dishwasher friendly and can be used to really spice up a table for that special dinner with loved ones. No more monotone home! When you visit the site, you’ll see plenty of drop-downs in the About section that introduces you to the artisans, the handcrafting process, the non-profits they represent – it’s great to feature it here today!
