This set features two coffee cups without handles. The cups are decorated with the white and black Räsymatto (Rag Rug) pattern and they are made of dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer safe white stoneware.
The Räsymatto (rag rug) pattern inspired by allotment gardening, is linked to topical themes like sustainable living and the joy of working with your hands. Allotments, with their flower and vegetable beds, represent urban nature at its best, and rag rug on the floor of an allotment cottage tells a colourful story of its own.

When you have the luxury of spending a couple of nights in a new city, one of the great benefits is doing a little exploration. Last month I had that opportunity when I visited Göteborg, a city on the southern east coast of Sweden, almost equidistant between Copenhagen and the Norwegian border.
Göteborg is home to Röhsska Museet, a wonderful museum of design and craft. Apart from having a permanent collection of design history which I highly recommend, one of their current exhibitions is Unmaking Democratic Design: Fredrik Paulsen.
For our friends and customers in Melbourne, there are still a few days left to catch a wonderful exhibition celebrating a legend of Australian mid-century design.
Clement Meadmore: the Art of Mid-Century Design is the first major survey examining the design practice of this seminal designer – and it took ten years to bring this perfectly-formed exhibition together.
