The three dots

The famous 3 dots that you can find at the back of our pieces in La Cartuja de Sevilla are from English origin and are used as a support system when our piece goes into the oven. It helps the varnish to cover the whole of the dish's surface giving it a longer durability to the enamel and therefore to the pieces.

That's the reason you see those 3 dots in some of your crockery pieces. It is, therefore, a manufacturing process hallmark based in the handicraft quality of La Cartuja de Sevilla.

Another artisan detail in La Cartuja de Sevilla pieces is the artisan sealing of handles to our mugs. Each of them done and reviewed manually.
