La Tiendita del Barro
Oaxaca City, Mexico
Traditional pottery in Oaxaca is at risk of disappearing. In a world of disposable plastic products, produced in the millions, the unique craft of the potter is rarely valued. Since they cannot earn a sufficient and fair income, many are abandoning the craft altogether. La Tiendita del Barro provides a shopfront and art gallery opportunities for this collective to showcase their works.
The collective operates by fair/solidarity trade, and with ecologically sustainable practices. All products are free of lead and free of exploitation.
