We purchased some bowls and mugs. They are stunning, we wish we would've bought more! It has been almost four months since our purchase, and they look just as new with lots of use.

This place is located away from the zocalo. We walked there, thank goodness. When we arrived it was difficult to know if it was open or not. I'm sure if we were driving we would not have stopped. So we knocked on the gate and to our surprise they were open. Inside we took the factory tour and learned about... More

The staff is really kind and you can see how proud they are about their work. The store has a super wide variety of product and we found them... More

One of the few traditional Talavera shops that follows the historic methods of production. This place is much more! It is set in a beautiful location, where murals, water fountains and plants set a great stage to see the many different steps and hands that take to produce a single piece of Talavera. Their store has a great variety of... More

I have visited this factory and store several times and have been very pleased with their products. It is genuine talavera and you can go on the tour to see the entire process. It is entirely hand made from start to finish - from the mixing of the clays by foot to the hand painting of each piece. I would... More

We entered Talavera de la Luz through a closed doorway from the street into an Alladin's Cave of the most exquisite pottery in Puebla. The quality, design and workmanship were superb! Georgina and Sandro were friendly and most helpful. If you are in the market for quality Puebla pottery, save yourself time and head straight to Talavera de la Luz!

Wonderful place to learn all about talavera. Once you hear about the process it is hard not to want to bring a piece (or two) back home! A special treat.

Besides learning the fabrication process, here you can see the artists at work. Each product is a signed piece and original. For lovers of this type of quality pottery, the variety is large and unique. They take credit cards and will ship.
