Exclusive Edition 001 Sel De Mer

This crunchy sea salt is hand-harvested using ancient methods by the cooperative, Les Sauniers de l'Île de Ré. The first salt marshes on Île de Ré were created during the Middle Ages to preserve food. At that time, marshes could be seen throughout the coastline where the clay used to form the marais was naturally found. Today, there are sixty sauniers harvesting fleur de sel and gros sel within the island cooperative. Available only through Stories + Objects, the Île de Ré sel de mer comes with a hand-thrown, hand-painted porcelain salt jar by master ceramicist Roberto Carrillo.
