the artistry and skill of our artisans. As you explore our store,

it’s a direct connection to the warmth and diversity of Mexico.

Amate Bark Painting

Talavera

The rich ceramic heritage of Talavera was introduced to Mexico by Spanish guild artisans from the colonial period.
Mexican Talavera takes its name from the 16th century Spanish pottery center, Talavera de la Reina.
While the intricate polychrome and more typical designs in blue and white showcase their Old World heritage,
native animal and floral motifs claim these colorful ceramics as classically Mexican.
