A set of 2 round red clay copitas (little cups) for sipping mezcal, handcrafted by a cooperative of women in San Marcos, Tlapazola, Oaxaca. Every copita is shaped by hand, and finished with a red clay slip which creates a uniquely textural finish.
The women-led cooperative, known worldwide as Mujeres del Barro Rojo (women of the red clay), was founded by Macrina Mateo Martinez. As a teenager, she traveled outside her village (which, as a woman, was frowned upon at the time) to find a wider audience and reach new markets, as well as expand upon the traditions and designs of previous generations. Her knowledge and experience helped the village and the cooperative thrive, and most certainly kept alive the generations-old tradition of making red pottery that continues today.
