Though the visit was short, I was able to witness and learn first-hand the gender inequalities, political unrest, and other challenges these women face in their day to day lives. My resolve and respect for these women and their craft is stronger than ever.

This black stone pottery tea set comes from Terra Klay, a company that sources handcrafted earthenware from a group of skilled artisans in North East India. Each pot is handmade from locally sourced materials by women whose tribes have used these traditional pottery techniques for generations. Because every piece is made by hand, using bamboo tools rather than a potter's wheel, each pot and cup are one of a kind. Each unique pot design is named after one of the artisans involved in the design and production of the pottery.
