beautiful forest green color
Tamegroute is handmade pottery in a typical forest green color. Tamegroute originates from the village of the same name, which is also the last place before the Sahara desert begins. Tamegroute pottery comes in all shapes and sizes: plates, bowls, candlesticks, vases, pots and beautiful abstract art objects. We love it!

Tamegroute is handmade pottery in the typical, rich forest green color. Originally, the pottery comes from the eponymous village of Tamegroute, the last place before the Sahara begins, so in southern Morocco. It is therefore called in Berber “the last place before the desert”. Near Tamegroute is the Draa River. From this river clay is extracted with which the Moroccan pottery is made. Potters then make the most beautiful creations on their wheel and the tableware is placed in the sun for 24 hours to dry. When the tableware is dry the glaze is applied. This glaze contains a small amount of copper which gives Tamegroute its characteristic deep green color. How the glaze is made exactly, is something only the families from Tamegroute know. They pass on the secret recipe from generation to generation. Finally, the Moroccan pottery is baked. The tableware is piled up -giving the pieces the stiffer, slightly protruding ‘dots’. After firing, the unique creations are completely finished!
