Founded all the way back in 1875, Manufacture de Digoin – the oldest manufacturer in the town of Digoin in Burgundy – produces high-quality, ultra-resistant earthenware items crafted from French sandstone. Famous in France and beyond for its century-old savoir-faire and well-honed creation processes, the brand’s stunning offerings are the perfect way to add a unique French touch to your home. Specializing in the culinary and gardening spheres, Digoin sells a range of French earthenware that is remarkably strong and waterproof, so you can rest easy knowing that your pieces are not only beautiful, but you’ll be able to enjoy them for decades to come.
Over the years, MFCH has been delighted to partner with Manufacture de Digoin numerous times and in many ways (if you’re a long-time MFCH Magazine reader, you may remember them as our “Artisans of France” from our January/February 2019 issue feature!). These days, we are excited to stock some of their coveted French earthenware in the MFCH Boutique.
