Handcrafted by a family-run workshop in Mexico City, each vessel takes a week to complete. All made exclusively in a fair trade environment.

Note: These vases are waterproof, perfect for styling florals and greenery. Since there aren’t drainage holes at the bottom, we recommend adding a base layer of pebbles if using for potted plants.

    Short - 5.5"H x 3"D (Top - 1.75" Diameter)

Beautiful and with a nice texture

These vases are absolutely lovely in person. And they have a slightly rough, speckled texture which I wasn’t expecting and is also lovely.

Beautiful and sleek pieces of art!

I ordered these for my entryway table and they look great! I have already received compliments on them. The craftsmanship is impeccable. My table is a very dark grey stained wood and these vases are actually a little lighter in color than the table. I expected darker, more of a true black which is how I originally viewed the pictures online. Now when looking at the first picture on the website, the smaller vase does show a little lighter. They are a few shades lighter than that in person. The lighter coloring actually worked out even better for me though and I love everything about them!

Carter, Wow! Thank you for such kind words. We couldn’t be more thrilled that our Engobe Vases found their way to what sounds like a stunner of a home (dark grey wood + matte black vases = swoon). Your support means so much, and because of you we get to continue to bring the masterful work of our artisan partners into homes across the world. Thank you a million times over. With gratitude, The Citizenry Team

Gorgeous and classy

Love this purchase, these vases are beautifully crafted and very cool matte look. Definitely check sizing as the vases are smaller than anticipated and I wish they were larger. Overall, they are great pieces together or separately on a bookshelf or table.
