Le Souk Ceramique & Olivique
About Our Artisan Partner
The studio of Le Souk Ceramique opened in 1997 in Nabeul, Tunisia. Each timeless design is created in the studio where the artisans do not use any machinery or decals. The artisans mix every color batch of food safe glazes by hand and freehand paint every detail, resulting in one-of-a-kind works. Le Souk sets wages above minimum wage, provides healthcare and social security payments for artisans, and is in process to receive Tunisia’s Fair Trade certification.
After a chance meeting between a US Embassy worker and a ceramic artist in Tunisia in 1997, Le Souk Ceramique was born. Over the past 18 years, Le Souk Ceramique has expanded from a garage studio in Nabeul, Tunisia, to a fully-functioning workshop with over 50 employees, producing hand-painted ceramics and olive wood products. New olive wood products will be launching soon on our site!
