Set of 4 cups

Daily life in Morocco is steeped in sweet, herbal tea. Whether business, pleasure, or routine, every social situation is conducted over a steaming cup. See Blog post for a Moroccan mint tea recipe.

These sets contain four cups each, with color choices of black, gunpowder, or red in hand brushed arabesque patterns. The shape and size fit nicely in human hands.

These cups are handmade and hand-painted with traditional designs by skilled young students at an artisan school in Fez.

Hand wash.

  • These ceramics come from Le Centre de Formation et de Qualification dans les Métiers de l’ Artisanat (CFQMA) à Fès.

    The king of Morocco sponsored this new government institution in Fez as a vocational training center for traditional handicrafts. Visitors are welcome to watch young adult students at work learning a trade and to support the school by purchasing crafts directly from the workshop.

    We loved buying from the CFQMA because it represents our interests in preserving and continuing the beauty of handmade functional art in Moroccan culture, and because it was fun to observe and interact with the friendly students and staff.
