Le Souk Ceramique is an American-Tunisian company, started in 1997, with the simple goal of maintaining the traditions of hand-made and hand-painted ceramics. They seek to fill the niche in the marketplace with reasonably priced ceramics, truly hand-painted, that are produced in full in the Mediterranean region. They aim to maintain the art of hand-painted ceramics but also keep them affordable and functional. In the rapidly mechanized world, Le Souk is proud to show that their artisans paint each and every piece freehand. They do not outsource any aspect of the production; each piece is made in their studio in Nabeul, Tunisia.
