Seville Orange Marmelade - Farmers' China
Cartuja Monastery
June 2014

New village goods from the Cartuja Monastery in Seville

There are a lot of Orange trees growing in the garden of the Monastery of the Cartuja (Charterhouse), home of the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo. The nuns of the Santa Paula Monastery made 180 glasses orange marmelade from the oranges harvested here. We are sure that we now have the world's best orange marmelade in the International Village Shop. On sale from September 2014.

The abandoned monastery was converted into a factory of ceramic tiles and porcelain china in the middle of the 19th century, 'La Cartuja de Sevilla' continued to produce tiles in the monastery until 1982 when they moved to a different site in Seville. We designed a farmers' chinaware - 'Soy agricultor I me gustaria seguir siendolo' - that is currently produced by the Cartuja and will be presented in September too.
