Egg Cup – Ceramic and Fair Trade
A lovely ceramic egg cup with blue spots on it, pretty and ethically produced. These egg cups are nostalgic to eat from, and are a really nice Easter gift.
Arrives wrapped in ethically sourced tissue.
Dimensions: Approximately 5cm x 5cm.
Material: Glazed ceramic.
Provenance: Made Fair Trade in South of Madras near the East Coast of India in a small village, Allangkuppam. In an idyllic setting surrounded by trees and a good local supply of china clay, lies the Sivam pottery. Here the master potter and a group of about 60 artisans work together to create a wide variety of ceramic items. Made by hand, from when the raw clay is softened, formed on the potters’ wheel. Then fired in the wood burning kilns, glazed and finally packed.
Thanks to the ceramic unit with IFAT member support and employees benefit from medical and insurance facilities. And a school opened in the village for 350 pupils under the age of 11.
