What is Tamegroute?
Tamegroute pottery is a work of art. With a unique crafting process that has been passed down from generation to generation, the process begins at the River Draa where potters dig up the clay and then spin and shape the clay into unique bowls, mugs and serving platters. The pottery is then hand dipped into the glazing mixture giving the pottery it’s distinctive green colour. Once this process is complete the pottery is baked in one of the seven ovens in Tamegroute at a high temperature. The unique process is like no other and each piece produced bares it’s own marks, patterns and traits.
