People Loving - Working only with small communities & family businesses, Moon & Star aims to provide income security & self-sufficiency to those they partner with. Artisans are paid their full asking price so that they never have to compromise their economic situation in any way.
Planet Loving - To prevent environmental damage to the region the red & white soil used to make the posts is mined only once a year. There are also no chemicals involved, & as each pot is made by hand there's also no need for machinery ... meaning no energy consumption. Plus these pots will last a lifetime, so no need to worry about a replacement, just an addition.
Handcrafted - Moulded to shape completely by hand with the use of only a few simple tools, these pots are formed the same way that they've been made for thousands of years.
Cause Supporting - Up to 10% of Moon & Star's annual profit goes back into the local communities to improve conditions of small businesses that most need assistance.
The Good Life - If we're concerned about what we're eating, we should be equally concerned with what we're cooking our food in. With these pots there's nothing to worry about, as they're 100% free from toxic chemicals - you won't find a more natural pot than this one!
Locally Made - Moon & Star works closely with local artisans all over Turkey, & choose to source their clay pots from a small village named Sorkun. Many families from this area have at least one member who is skilled in creating these pots using the traditions from past generations. Sorkun has become known as one of the places to go for authentic pottery production.

Your pot can be used in the oven or wood oven, on any stove top or barbecue, placed directly in the fire, & the fridge. The only thing that these natural gems can't take is washing with dishwashing liquids, detergents & the dishwasher. Be sure to wash your clay pot using only warm or hot water! Then dry well with any cloth & leave the lid off to fully dry out. If your pot has been in the fridge don't put in directly on the fire while still cold. Wait until it reaches room temperature as drastic changes in temperature may compromise the product. Before using your pot for the first time boil water 2 – 3 times in it to clean & sterilize it as your pot has come to you straight from the fire.
Note: As all pots are handmade, slight variations may occur.
Country of Origin: Turkey
NB: Products are shipped directly from Turkey.
About Moon & Star
After travelling through over 30 different countries, the creators of Moon & Star realised how little the world knew of Turkey's artisan treasures. Villages, families & communities have been quietly producing & perfecting their art for hundreds of years. Not only do these local communities produce quality items, but they do so while sustaining their history & traditions along with having environmentally friendly manufacturing processes & working to empower local people. All this is done not as a marketing ploy, but instead out of the knowledge it's both the sustainable, & right way to do things for their communities.
Moon & Star aim to strengthen these local communities & promote their products by working closely with each individual artisan, assisting in bringing them into an international marketplace. Comprised of an aeronautical engineer, interior designer, sales executive & teacher, this group has pooled their experiences & abilities to create a company that aim to share the treasures of Turkey with the global community.
