Le Souk Ceramique

Le Souk Ceramique preserves and honors traditional Tunisian artisanship and highlights the mastery and cultural importance of painted bisque-making. The studio is located in Nabeul, a northeast coastal town known as the ceramic capital of the country.

Le Souk artisans produce ceramic tableware that is painted entirely freehand using raw clay, glazes, and paints. Every artisan is involved in the creative design and no labor is outsourced.

Artisans at Le Souk reflect the economic constraints present in Tunisia, as many did not complete high school or college. Le Souk Ceramique hires and trains artisans from predominantly lower socioeconomic backgrounds in order to provide those without marketable skills fair wages. The workshop is also eco-friendly: all clay shreds are recycled daily, all packaging boxes are 100% recyclable, and all paints and glazes used are non-toxic and foodsafe.

Today, Le Souk facilitates craft training for hopeful painters and potters in the studio’s neighborhood. They also pay fully into Caisse Nationale de Securite Sociale, Tunisia’s healthcare and retirement system, and give annual bonuses to employees during Ramadan and paid vacation.
