Most of the crafters come from the local community where unemployment is high. Of the 120 workers, 90% are women, who have been working with the organisation for almost 10 years.
The ceramics are poured into a mold, then hand-painted. During the whole process, the mugs are fired three times, creating a glossy finish that is dishwasher and microwave safe.
