Designed by Bloomist in collaboration with renowned stylist and author, Hilary Robertson, these striking clay wall beads are made exclusively for us. We traveled to Tunisia to work with Sejnania and the women potters of Sejnane, where they are wood-fired and assembled by hand. Each one is unique and we love how the clay is marked by the fire.
Hang on the wall, coil in a bowl, or add a rustic touch to a table-scape.
Located in the hills of northern Tunisia, not far from the Mediterranean coastline, Sejnane is not just a town; it’s synonymous with an iconic style of pottery-making. This technique has passed from mother to daughter over the generations, with each artist contributing her own ideas to this collective design language.
Sejnane pottery was recently classified as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, recognizing its important role in Tunisia’s cultural heritage. This award helps protect the skills and subsequently livelihoods of the Sejnane women potters.
