TEHRAN - BERLIN - born out of a friendship and a shared love for the craft of the Middle East KHASHKHASH emerged 2015. Together we collect individual pieces and products in the Iranian highlands, which are produced by small workshops and manufacturers.
Update 2021: After years of producing in the deserts of Iran we are happy to present the first KHASHKHASH pottery made in Europe.
Our new workshop is located north of Berlin in the region called Uckermark.
With a small but experienced team we are manufacturing according to the
local pottery standard of around 1908. We dig and work with our own
raw materials. All goods are fired in an old traditional kiln.
The shape of our pottery is clear and unadorned – but after days of blasting fire
the minerals and sands of the clay react and show different colors by the
changes of temperature and atmosphere in the oven.
Each pot develops an individual look.
This new pottery is a clear decision to produce locally and therefore in a more
resource-efficient manner. Without weeks of transport, without excessive
consumption of energy and raw materials.
We like to rely on European environmental standards.
The whole process - from the clay pit to the packaging material – is in our hands.
