Immersive Tile & Ceramics Experience

October 3-7, 2019

in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Stampworthy Travels x Clay Imports


The backstory

Stampworthy Goods is an Austin-based company that refurbishes furniture with Mexican tile and fabrics. This past year, in addition to selling home goods, we launched Stampworthy Travels as a way to bring our customers closer to the artists, designers, and weavers that produce all the materials.

Naturally, this led to a conversation with our Austin-based partner, Clay Imports, about ways to incorporate their tile-making facilities in San Miguel de Allende into an immersive ceramics and design experience.

Some of the highlights include:

  • a curated design tour of picturesque homes in San Miguel de Allende,

  • a tour of Clay Imports’s tile making process,

  • designing your own ceramic piece to bring home,

  • a private welcome dinner,

  • a winery visit…

Okay, okay the list goes on! We’re incredibly excited to launch this experience to the public.

5% of Trip Proceeds

5% of all trip proceeds go to a nutrition project in Guanajuato that focuses on eating choices and heath education to La Casa de Las Nubes, a community driven project in an unregistered zone of Guanajuato with no access to water and exposure to the cultural dynamics of poverty. The program seeks to educate via food classes with a nutrition professor from the community and gives out weeks worth of groceries per workshop so they can practice recipes at home.
