Nejma 12" Salad/Pasta Bowl

Product Specifications

Nejma means "star" in Arabic.  The goal was to create a pattern with bright red as the predominant color and a geometric design.  The resulting star pattern is extremely intricate and difficult to execute, but the results are well worth the effort of the artists who hand paint each piece.

Each piece is 100% hand-made and hand-painted earthenware (also known as Majolica.)

All paints and glazes are food safe.

Dishwasher safe.

Can be used in the microwave for light reheating, but use oven mitts when handling as the relatively porous earthenware absorbs heat.

Oven-safe at up to 250° F for light reheating.  Not for baking, stove-top cooking, or freezing.

Made in Tunisia by adults over 21 who are not segregated by gender.  Working conditions in the studio are excellent, with proper lighting and ventilation.  Wages are well above Tunisian peers and minimum wage, and the workers fully participate in the government's social programs.
