Tapayan are large wide-mouthed earthenware or stoneware jars found in various locations around Southeast Asia including Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia. Their various functions include fermenting rice , fermenting vinegar or alcoholic beverages, storing food and water, and cooking.
Tapayan were used primarily as storage jars for foodstuffs and valuable trade goods during ship voyages, but were highly valued as trade goods themselves. They became heirlooms and symbols of wealth and status among various indigenous cultures in the islands of Southeast Asia.
We are lucky enough to have two Tapayan Pots available, both in excellent condition.
