    Elegant and rustic

    I own this mug in the yellow and blue colors. It's solid yet incredibly lightweight. Retains heat well. I'm loving this mug for tea in the autumn and winter months given its more rustic and rather heftier look.



    Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review. Our craftsmen and we would be so happy if you could use the mugs with great care for a long time! We are looking forward to your next visit.
