Social Impact: the Rustica Gift & Talavera Pottery Mission



Here at Rustica Gift & Pottery, simply selling the world's most beautiful Mexican Talavera pottery, Majolica, Greek Minoan pottery and pewter isn't enough for us.  We want to make a difference, and we know you do, too.

We are proud  to partner with IPODERACInstituto Poblano de Readaptacion Children's Fund, in support of their mission to deliver critically needed housing, education and job training services to Puebla's street children.   For over 50 years, IPODERAC has mentored and cared for the region's at-risk children, helping hundreds of the community's youth to thrive and go on to full and productive lives.

We are honored to support their mission by donating a portion of proceeds from our sales to their program.  To date, we've donated an average of 5% of net proceeds to the organization.


Your purchase of am authentic artisan heirloom-quality piece does so much more than bring a cherished, functional item of beauty into your home.  You become an agent for social impact in two very important ways.  First, your purchase helps ensure the continuation of original Mexican Talavera pottery and other handcraft for the artisans and their families.  Second,you create a brighter future for disadvantaged children in the artisan's community outside of Puebla, MX.  

You can enjoy your pottery or pewter purchase, knowing a portion of the proceeds will go to ensure a safe, happy home environment for a needy child, plus the ability to go to school, learn a trade, and to have a sense of community.


For over 50 years, IPODERAC has providing a safe, secure environment in which young, homeless boys can grow and flourish.

Soon, with your help, the young girls of the area will have this same security and opportunity to succeed in life, as IPODERAC moves forward with their fundraising for a girl's shelter and education program.




 The rising need for the area's young girls to have access to safe, comfortable and positive shelter and education has inspired IPODERAC to launch a campaign to establish an IPODERAC Program for Girls

The campaign has succeeded in creating a facility for vulnerable girls and your support to ensure it's ongoing success is gratefully appreciatedYou are a part of the positive change, and the new opportunity these children have in front of them, with every purchase from this site.  And, you can get directly involved with the IPODERAC mission as well:
