low waste and sustainable
These wooden cups are made from sustainable timber from a single tree – the One Ash tree . Each one is turned while the wood is still ‘green’ or fresh. Then as it dries it settles into a unique, organic shape. To show its provenance the base is hand burnt with a unique number (see photo).
Historically, people used to have their own personal cup which was a treasured possession. To make yours extra special why not have a name or initials hand burnt into the wood? Please specify your chosen name or initials in the ‘personalisation’ box at checkout.
Wooden cups are finished with sustainable hemp seed oil. It’s a locally produced, 100% organic cold pressed oil that’s heated to 190 degrees c to insure it really penetrates into the grain. It has a distinctive nutty flavour and smell similar to sunflower seeds. This will be quite prominent when the cup’s new but will fade over time with repeated washings.
