The history of the village 

Founded by the Jesuits and several hundred years old, the village has over time turned to the manufacture of clay objects. The red clay present in the surroundings has made the manufacture of tiles and bricks flourish. One of the oldest brick factories in France is still in operation. A know-how which made the reputation of this village and which makes this place a must in Martinique.

Whether you are 6 or 70 years old, don't hesitate to go through the door of the pottery artisans' workshops. They will be happy to share their knowledge and techniques with you. You will be seduced by the diversity of the objects offered. They are unique and colourful. Ceramics satisfy all tastes. 

As a craft, ceramics offers the possibility of making a wide range of everyday objects. And from an artistic point of view, it offers a form of expression with infinite combinations of colours and textures.
