About The Maker

Talavera de la Reyna

View Profile
TALAVERA DE LA REYNA Was born in 1990 having as objective to rescue one of the most important handicraft processes of Mexico and take it without being separated from the tradition that dates from the XVI century to its contemporaneity THE DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN Talavera, issued in 1998 by the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (MIIP) and the Official Mexican Standards (OMS), guarantees the authenticity of the production process and the highest quality of each one of our parts. Denomination of Origin, refers to a geographical indication given to a product, that by their history, materials, labor and quality, can only be produced in a specific area. In September 1997, the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (MIIP) attaches to Puebla, and in particular to the Municipalities of: Atlixco, Puebla, Cholula and Tecali. HISTORY OF THE TALAVERA Originates in Baghdad in the ninth century. The Arabs with the desire to imitate the Chinese ceramic that came to that area, discover this ingenious technique. They transported to Spain during the invasion of the moors and subsequently set roots in Mexico with the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century.
