“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.

The black clay located in this region is one of the purest of its kind. Why you might ask, because the “barro negro” itself is noble, clean and composed of very few contaminants. The purity of this raw material gives the clay its beautiful, minimalistically sophisticated appearance.
