I find Manufaktura to be more expensive for pottery shopping than several of the other shops. They carry traditional and more modern designs.

We didn’t buy much but the tour was fun. To see the whole process of creating pottery was quite impressive.

They had a decent selection of styles, but none really caught our attention. We didn’t end up buying anything here...which is unusual for us in terms of pottery and ceramics.

Only some of their tours are in English, the rest, Polish, so I'd suggest checking their website and reserving in advance. It was fascinating and I too love Polish pottery.
