These artisan made mugs 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.

Perfectly imperfect, these cups will add a rustic beauty to your table. Because they are handmade, no two pieces are exactly the same. Size, shape and color will vary slightly.

Red clay products are made using traditional methods and are not chemically sealed. Clay is porous and will absorb any liquid that it comes in contact with. To help prevent this, you can soak them in water for a minute or two before using.

Red clay bowls, plates and mezcal copitas made by the same artisan are also available.

Made in Mexico | Lead-free | Hand washing recommended

By purchasing this item, you are helping artisan communities in and around Oaxaca to be able to continue making a living through their craft.

Searching for mezcal's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!
