I was very excited to see this factory, as it is supposed to be the oldest one. While the building is nice, they need to improve their attitude and the way they treat people. We entered the shop and no one offered to help us,...More

We feel deeply sorry about your experience. Usually our staff is always alert, the store is big (old patio and rooms) and sometimes they are busy with other clients or phone calls. I hope you give us the opportunity to show you our amazing artisanal...More

Initially this building looks like a classy show-room for the very beautiful and expensive Talavera ceramics on sale, but you need to take a tour, when you will be shown round the area behind the central courtyard and discover how these lovely items are made....More

Sorry for this experience we have 4 sales people in the store, when you arrived half our staff were giving a tour inside the factory. There is no other good quality talavera: we're the first talavera producer in the world and the most prestigious workshop....More

This was one of the highlights of the trip! This talavera factory and store is one of the oldest businesses in Mexico and one of a handful of authentic talavera vendors (per strict governmental requirements). Each piece is made by hand. Be sure not to...More

I would like to know where I can buy clay to make my own pottery. I own a home in Tulum, and want the clay shipped there. Once I find the right clay, I plan to have a kiln shipped to Tulum.
