Perfect for little or big hands alike, these food-safe stoneware cups have a soft-white glaze and are hand-thrown especially for Kata Golda by a local potter. Each varies slightly in size, measuring approximately 3.25" tall (~2.7" diameter); holds approximately 8 ounces. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
In 1999, inspired by the color and texture of hand-dyed wool felt, Alison Kaplan started making toys for her baby girl. As her daughter grew and began to draw, Alison made her first sketchbook, decorated with a hand-stitched felt teddy bear and adorned with her name. It became the forerunner of the Kata Golda collection.
Kata Golda has grown into a flourishing business with the help of many skilled artisans living on the West Coast of the United States. Kata Golda strives to pay living wages and preserve handicrafts such as needlework, letterpress printing, hand-thrown pottery, hand-dyed textiles, felting and bookbinding.
By using up every little scrap of material and reusing supplies as much as possible, Kata Golda strives to produce zero waste and have the lowest impact on the environment possible.
