FROM TUNISIA TO YOUR DINNER TABLE
The dinner table is more than just a place to sit down and eat. It serves as a point of crossroads coming together to develop deeper human bonds. Named after the ancient city of Carthage that once served as a connecting point of Mediterranean trade, the Carthage.Co mission is to provide a valuable point of connection that starts in Tunisia and ends at your dinner table, bringing you beautifully crafted artisan stoneware without a luxury price tag. We’re passionate about being part of your dinner table because we know that the bonds started here are the ones that create memories and impact historical moments.

Our company brings two continents together to create a world table and our co-founders, Andrew and Paul, each contribute different qualities as they gather around it. Together, these lifelong friends discovered they shared the same passion for doing business which positively impacted the lives of the creators of products as much as those who bought them and from there, Carthage.Co was born.
Spending ten years working with students, Andrew developed leadership teams, took students on discovery trips around the world and loved engaging with new cultures. As an MBA student, Andrew took his entrepreneurial spirit to the next level wanting to transform people’s lives having social impact. Paul, an experienced traveler spending years in Africa prior, moved to Tunisia and embraced its forward-thinking culture. Through his immersion, he discovered quality products that would be worth exporting to the American market. At Carthage.Co we work to honor and empower Tunisian artisans and create jobs in the U.S.
We’re proud to partner with local manufacturers that employ and empower their communities with dignity and equity. Carthage.Co knows that affordability plays a major role in the products that reach your table. Creating a direct to consumer channel, you get the same high-end products at a fraction of a retail store’s price. This direct relationship influences our customers and draws them into the lives and narratives of those who make our pieces.
WHAT MAKES OUR STONEWARE SO UNIQUE
We want to do more than set your table with our stoneware, we want to curate it! Carthage.Co brings you handcrafted Tunisian ceramics with a rich history in the making. Our products are ethically sourced. Our collections are far from mainstream as we don’t believe in taking the raw materials for our stoneware to be made completely identical in a factory setting. We think of ourselves as the step in between you traveling to a Tunisian open air market to purchase these pieces from an artisan yourself. We’re glad to save you the trip and welcome you to our world table.
