We launched Rustica Gift & Pottery in 2014 with the simple idea that beauty, artistry and history matter - for your home, life and the world in which we live.
Just as importantly, we believed that beauty could not only be enjoyed, but be used for to make life better for those less fortunate, all while supporting the continued existence of original, artisan handwork.
We traveled to the beautiful Colonial villages of Central Mexico to bring back for you the best pieces of artisan work we could discover; original, authentic, time-tested beauty with every piece made by generations of artisans.
We also created a partnership with a local youth home that ensures the indigenous children will have an opportunity for success through education, skill-training, a safe place to live and the opportunity to feel like a family.
As we continue, we'll share stories from our adventures in our blog, Life, Well Lived.
Rustica Gift & Pottery will contribute a portion of proceeds from each purchase to IPODERAC, a not-for-profit serving the area’s in-need youth through education, food and shelter, a sense of belonging and family for over 50 years. Learn More.
