Talavera Pottery Inspiration

Behind the Design Wednesdays: Every week Tea writes about our designers’ inspiration for our current collection of clothing. For more Behind the Designs click here.

Talavera pottery was brought to Mexico by the Spanish during colonial times. The craft technique flourished in Mexico because of the wide availability of clay in some areas. The pottery we see today is a unique marriage of traditional Spanish techniques and indigenous ceramic techniques. The pictures above depict some of the pottery we saw on our Mexico trip. Make sure to check out all of our beautiful Talavera inspired pieces.
