Many of our Clients love Cretan terracotta pots due to their unique look and rich history. The history of pots in Crete can be traced back to the Minoan civilisation... now we're going as far back as 3000 BC!
The Minoan's traditionally used large open neck pots named Pithoi to store grains, oils and wines. The most famous of their grand palaces, Knossos, featured huge storage rooms capable of holding hundreds of these large pots.
Today, many of the pots thrown in Crete take characteristics from their ancient cousins. Although, we doubt that you will be using yours to store 200 litres of wine (if so, we won't judge!).
