A true mix of cultures
Algerian pottery is the result of an intermingling of cultures which has developed over time: some people think that it is a tradition that has been around since ancestral times, although the reality is that all the local arts have been shaped by the different civilizations that have passed through. This accounts for the significant variations you will see in the different areas of Algeria: in Kabylia, the pottery tends to be a reddish colour; in the Adrar area, the colour tends to be black; and the pottery produced in the Nementcha Mountains has shades of red and pink and different brown tones due the clay used to make it in this area. Luckily, you will find all these varieties of pottery in Oran, and you can choose the one that best fits in with the décor of your house.
