One Village

One Village One Village is a long established fair trade organisation; their buying policies are extremely rigorous and Roy Scott, the founder, has firm views on what can be classified as "fair". If interested in the concept of "fair trade" check out Roy's views on the One Village website. The terracotta pottery is produced at a village pottery to the north of Kolkata in eastern India. The clay is from the nearby Ganges where its removal clears the river estuary; it is exceptionally fine for pottery, with a rich reddish colour. All the processes are by hand, each piece is thrown on the wheel and the pots are high fired up to 1050
