Made in: Haiti
Artisan Group: Papillon Enterprise
These handmade 8 oz. clay mugs are sure to be your favorite for enjoying morning coffees and bedtime teas! Each mug is kiln fired and finished with food-safe, lead-free glaze.
Why is this clay unique? In desperate times, extremely poor families in Haiti will mix clay from the ground with water, oil and salt to create a clay "cookie." These clay cookies are eaten by adults and children in order to fill their stomachs when food is not available.
By transforming the same clay into these beautiful mugs, artisans from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti are able to sculpt their way out of poverty and support their families!
Size: Each mug is approximately 3" tall x 3" wide.
How to take care of your mug: The mugs are lead-free, dishwasher safe, and microwave safe, although we recommend hand-washing them and keeping microwave use minimal to offer extra care and enhance the longevity of your mug (as you would do with any other handmade, hand-glazed item).
