OUR PASSION

What we love about these products is that they are made with so much dedication and love

It started almost 40 years ago (in Aruba) when I had the dream to connect the culture, creativity, and work of my people with the rest of the world. This dream and my work with those artisans which make the Black Pottery’s articles did not stop when I move to Holland in the year 1996. Since then my husband, daughter and me, are completely dedicated and committed to sell and promote this fantastic product. This way, we can help the families of the village “La Chamba” in Colombia, where these objects are made and allow you to enjoy what mother earth still has to offer through this 100% organic product.

And so, we have started by selling the Black Pottery collection to prestigious shops as wholesalers. Nowadays, we want to give everyone the opportunity, also those who do not have a Black Pottery Distributor close in their town, to buy through our webshop.

Our loyalty to the artisans, the passion for our work and our idealistic goals, make us work hard, laugh often, and collaborate with our “business to business” or “private” contacts. We immediately earn the trust of our clients and exceed their expectations. We become members of people’s families for a day of celebration. We invest all of our energy in realizing the dream of helping others by our motto of “trade and not only aid”. We will keep doing the best job for our clients, making these products available in Holland, Belgium, and the rest of Europe.

OUR VISION & VALUES

Our vision is to be the  “First  Leading Company offering the real 100%  organic handmade Black Pottery products for cook-and tableware in the whole of Europe”.  This does not mean being the biggest company, but the company that works the best in terms of social and loyal consciousness towards the artisans of  “La Chamba”. We do this through our trade, to create the conditions and infrastructure that will guarantee these families will continue making these objects the same way their ancestors did it, which is the extra value of these items. Our focus is also to give our costumers value, customer service, and consistent growth.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to help contribute to a world where the different cultures can maintain their traditions, arts and crafts, and can live from them through the recognition and fair value of their work.

We aim to achieve this vision by:

  1. Providing the artisans the opportunity to reach the international market trough us, by introducing their products and showing their culture to the world.  
  2. Contributing to a responsible social commitment, providing support, guidance and education to members of the families in charge, to help them to take the export of their products in their own hands. 
  3. Setting standards for their well-being and work conditions.
