Alfonso Jar

Enjoy the unusual and amazing finish of these jars. Use it as a container for seeds, coffee or anything you need to store in your pantry and kitchen. This mysterious finishing is unique from the Tonaltepec community, Oaxaca. It’s done with natural pigments. Tonaltepec is one of the few places that still use natural dyes. The finishing and shape may vary because of the handmade process. It is normal that mud “sweats” at the beginning. If this happens, you can “cure” the item by dipping it in water with salt for 24 hours. Size: W 6, 8.5 H  in.

Note: Dishwasher and microwave not recommended.
