Tactile and comforting, the rounded INAKI stoneware mug will quickly become your favourite. Hand-glazed in beautiful multitonal shades, each piece is one of a kind.
These stoneware ceramic designs are handmade by a large World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective in Kathmandu, Nepal. AURA QUE started working with the group in 2019. The artisans benefit from numerous initiatives, including allowances for family medical care and children's education, and a savings scheme. The organisation is active in reducing its environmental impact and has moved to electric firing for ceramics and away from kerosene-based firing. AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!

All our stoneware ceramics pieces are unique, handmade on the potter's wheel from a mix of local Nepalese clay. Any hand-carved details are added before each piece is dried in the sun, glazed and fired at high temperatures in large kilns. To maximise efficiency, not an inch of space is wasted in the kilns, which run for days at a time to maintain the heat. The high firing temperature makes our stoneware ceramics dishwasher and microwave safe, and surprisingly chip resistant. Please note that slight variations are part of the appeal of our stoneware, so these pieces are not appropriate for those seeking production line uniformity. The richly coloured glazes used for our stoneware are sourced from North India.
Care instructions: Safe to use in dishwasher (top shelf) and microwave.
