“ Our tableware is created from only pure copper and its alloys. It is handcrafted, annealed, heated and burnished with care to bring out the beautiful colours from within the metals, ensuring that each piece is truly unique. It is hermetically sealed in a high quality coating to prevent tarnishing and should be washed with care in soap and water.”
Meaning of ‘hermetically sealed’….sealed so no air can touch the metal
Workers feedback - “It’s like a good home, there is respect, team work… we enjoy being there…it supports people to support families; working together brings freedom; want to see copper craft go to another level.”
