It is in the small village of Sejnane, located in the hills of Northern Tunisia, that women continue to practice the ancestral Techniques of its internationally known pottery.
The soil of Sejnane, the town of the Governorate of Bizerte, is full of clay. The craftsman only has to dig a hole in the ground to extract it. The earth is then washed, cleared of impurities, and then mixed.
The final step is for women to shape clay by hand to give it the desired shape. The satin effect is obtained by sanding the object several times with a shell.
Unesco has just included the expertise of Sejnane’s pottery on the representative list of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
