Pottery continues to maintain practical relevance in modern India, and in this particular village, the shaping of clay has grown to become its primary industry. It is hard to describe in words the joy of meeting and interacting with such beautiful, happy people. The entire community plays a role in the production of the pieces in our range, and it’s immensely exciting to showcase their abilities. We guarantee that each gorgeous hand-sculpted piece comes ingrained with the village’s character and spirit of happiness.
Matka Clay Oval Pot
While sourcing our collection across India, we noticed these wonderfully shaped clay pots in every community we encountered. Known locally as ‘Matka,’ Indians have been using these vessels to store water for centuries. Their porous composition enables condensation, promoting a natural cooling process. Having an appreciation for versatility and repurposing old-world goods, we knew that putting our spin on these wonders would offer a fantastic potting feature.
