Tabarka is named for the small city in Northwest Tunisia and the area from which we get our raw clay. Every August Tabarka has a jazz festival and that's where we scribbled and sketched the design that developed into our pattern. Since we introduced it in 2008, Tabarka has been featured in several magazines and is always one our most popular patterns at trade shows. In fact, it's been so popular that we are considering making a new Tabarka-like design with a different color palette, much like Sauvage/Jaferjee. If you have a preference for the color scheme, we'd love to hear your suggestions. We're leaning toward greens and purples.
