Palestinian Lantana Ceramic Mug
Bring some autumnal chic into your life with the gorgeous colours of this traditional Palestinian lantana pattern. This generously sized mug has a white background which perfectly sets off the muted burgundy band around the top and bottom of the mug as well as the burgundy flowers and green leaves. It would look great paired with a matching dipping and spice bowl and the colour scheme would be wonderful on a festive table.
This range is made in the town of Hebron where the tradition of making and decorating glass and ceramics dates back over 500 years. In total it takes a week to make each item from shaping the clay by hand, painting the traditional Palestinian floral and arabesque designs, through to the final glaze and firing. Making these ceramics creates work for the skilled fair trade artisans who are living in one of the most challenging regions of the world. They are brought to us by Fair To Trade who, like us, are members of BAFTS Fair Trade Network UK.
