“The clay that paints the night sky.”
San Bartolo Coyotepec is a Zapotec community located in the heart of Oaxaca, Mexico. This historic small town is the only location in the entire country where artisans have worked the “barro” for over 2000 years. It is their craftsmanship passed down and developed from generation to generation that makes these pieces so meaningful.
Even today the majority of San Bartolo’s inhabitants practice this ancient art. So much so that they have become nationally and internationally recognized for the uniqueness and quality of the products they produce.
