The Molcajete C Pestle and Mortar Set is a modern reinterpretation of the millenary shape of the traditional Mexican mocajete. Its design features a contemporary shape to blend into new contexts within your tableware.

This set is perfect to grind sea salt, black peppercorns, chilli or any other condiment. The wooden base not only adds to the decorativeness of this set but also protects the table’s surface from scratches. The set is handcarved from a single piece of volcanic stone by the master craftsmen of the Rodríguez family in Jalisco, Mexico.
