Nejma Utensil Carafe
Handmade in Tunisia and painted free hand by each artist. Since Tunisia's independence revolution in 2011, democracy welcomed in new opportunities for employment. Our partner advocates for sustainable jobs with safe working conditions, above minimum wage salaries, and participation into the Tunisian health care system and social security paid fully by the cooperative.
Hand painted with food safe paints and glazes that comply with US FDA regulations for lead and cadmium, European REACH regulations, as well as the even more stringent California Prop 65 standards. With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in one of the U.S. National Parks.
The art of ceramics is rooted in the local traditions of Northern Africa countries. Used since the antiquity, ceramics were used to store and preserve harvests of corn, lens, dates and olive oil. Oil lamps and small figurines based on clay are used in the ceremonies of marriages to carry happiness and move away bad spirits.
