These artisan mezcal cups are made of natural red clay (barro rojo) by a cooperative of women living in San Marcos Tlapazola - a rural Zapotec village of about 1,100 people about an hour outside of Oaxaca, Mexico. For 20 generations, the village has specialized in making cookware and tableware out of the red clay found in that region by the potters who are all women.

They say that when you drink mezcal, it brings back memories and makes you cry - hence the swollen eyes and faces on the cups.

Because they are handmade, no two pieces are exactly the same, just as no two faces are the same. They measure approximately 1.5" in diameter and stand about 2.25" high and hold around 1 ounce of liquid.

Red clay products are made using traditional methods and are not chemically sealed

For best results, please soak the glasses in water for a minute or two before using. Clay is porous and will absorb any liquid that it comes in contact with. By soaking them in water, it will prevent them from absorbing the mezcal and will also keep your drink cool. Salud!

“Para todo mal, mezcal, y para todo bien, también”
