Artisan Spotlight: Colectivo 1050

Why we love Colectivo 1050:

Colectivo 1050’s is a collective whose products are hand-made in Oaxaca by traditional potters and designers. Each piece is imbued with the beauty and elegance that characterize the region's people. The collective operates on principles of fair trade, with a strong emphasis on ecologically sound practice; all their wares are lead free.
