Cooking utensils in olive wood, carafes in red clay, blankets made from recycled textiles, baskets and bags made from plant fibres and much more. The timeless products from Origem Comum are all handmade – from natural and often renewable raw materials.
Through publications, essays, interviews and audio-visual resources, we research and share stimulating reflections on the origin of crafts. From the material to the makers and utensils, valuing their practical intelligence and sophistication.
We design and develop special projects, commissions and collections alongside experienced craftspeople – drawing on vernacular knowledge, reinterpreting ancestral techniques or redefining uses for the raw materials and techniques of different regions. Please contact us for more information.
