An artisanal and family workshop, the Fortuné Schmitter pottery has been producing genuine Alsatian salt stoneware for 7 generations in the village of Betschdorf.

A traditional and family business since 1844, we produce genuine Alsatian salt sandstone. Our pottery, utility and
decorative, is entirely made in our workshop and has just obtained a Geographical Indication "potteries d'Alsace". THE
firing process, characteristic of Betschdorf production, gives all its authenticity to our pottery. It's there that
expresses all our know-how. Salt vitrification makes our pieces waterproof and unalterable.

To discover all our production, go to our store.
