Are you familiar with the beautiful online store of Royal Tichelaar in Makkum, The Netherlands?
Royal Tichelaar Makkum was established in 1594 and is the oldest company in The Netherlands. Out of love for the profession Royal Tichelaar Makkum still has a traditional production process. The only remaining company in the Netherlands fully specializes in ceramic handwork.
Traditional Delft Blue pottery
The main raw material – clay – is extracted from local soil. Tichelaar continued to invest in its traditional base, even when public interest in crafts in the late 20th century collapsed. That insistence resulted in the leading position the company now has in the design world.
Studio Job designed their Biscuit collection especially for Royal Tichelaar.
At the site of the current pottery in Makkum is baked clay without interruption since 1572.
