Witches’ Kitchen

An Artecnica Design with Conscience™ project, Witches’ Kitchen™ is a handcrafted kitchenware collection inspired by the witches and wizards of western lore. The extensive collection is a collaborative exercise in sustainable design commissioned by Artecnica, designed by Tord Boontje, and handcrafted by artisan groups from three different South American countries.
Witches’ Kitchen features black ceramic cookware hand-molded by Colombian artisans, an assortment of wooden kitchen utensils hand-carved by Guatemalan craftsmen, and kitchen couture for men and women hand-sewn by Brazil’s Coopa-Roca women’s cooperative. Bridging the gap between sorcerer’s spell book and mother’s cookbook, Witches’ Kitchen celebrates the arcane magic behind every succulent dish.
