Nejma is one of our newest patterns (along with Jafferjee) that we introduced in late 2012. Nejma is by far and away the most difficult and time-consuming pattern to paint. Painting in the red around the stars takes time and an extremely steady hand. But the effort is obviously worth it because Nejma was our best-selling pattern at the NY Gift Show this past January 2013 and was quickly featured in Elle Decor magazine as a top "What's Hot" item. Each of our stoneware pieces is made and painted by hand using lead free and cadmium free food safe paints and glazes. Our new stoneware is highly durable, dishwasher and microwave safe and can now go from freezer to oven or vice versa. Nestled in the small Tunisian town of Nabeul on the Mediterranean coast, Le Souk Ceramique and its olive wood division Le Souk Olivique, employ some 50 plus local artisans full-time to create beautiful hand-made, hand-painted stoneware ceramic and carved olive wood pieces. The company is evolving to function as an artisan cooperative, completely owned and controlled by the skilled artisans themselves. At Le Souk Ceramique, we hand paint every piece entirely free-hand. We do not use any machinery or decals or stencils for our artwork. Legally, if most of a ceramic piece is painted by machine and just a small element is painted by hand, you can call it "hand painted". we paint every element by hand. We use a team approach that involves between 3 and 8 people depending on the design and how many colors and artistic elements are included. The entire production is performed by the artisans.
