Mateus is a ceramics company based in Portugal. It is environmentally and socially conscious, from the materials it sources, to the procedures in its work environment. The clay used by the company is a natural material with no harmful toxins or chemicals added into the mix. The factory provides local jobs and undergoes strict screenings in order to meet company standards. This includes cleaning the water used in manufacturing and reusing excess materials. The company has also implemented a no-plastic policy for their packaging and instead uses recycled materials.
