In Mino region, the largest ceramic production area in Japan, countless numbers of rejects are discarded. SAI Mug recycles those chips and pieces by grinding them fine, and use them as a recycled clay. The manufacturer, CHIPS inc. uses recycled clay for approximately 20% of the material, and their boxes are made of 100% recycled cardboard. The rejects and the cracked chips were not meant to be used for anything- but through creating SAI Mug, their goals are to give them another chance to brightens peoples' tables up, and to do their share on environmental conservation.
Minimalistic design with carefully crafted handle presents warmth and elegance in a single mug. It stands steadily on its own to hold your choice of drink, and can be piled together to be put away neatly, just like we do at Kyoto Stand.
The selection of cheerfully light colored yet matt textured SAI Mugs are perfect for any occasion, from everyday use to being part of your party pieces. Beautifully hand-made, each mug is unique on its own.
