This special edition mug celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the Marimekko Oiva collection. Designed by Sami Ruotsalainen, the decade-old dinnerware collection has become a staple of the Marimekko brand and design-lover's households. Its clean lines, modern form, and functional features makes it the perfect canvas for Marimekko's bold prints.
Here, however, the stoneware is left white so its simple shape can speak for itself - with the exception of a beautiful golden rim. The same gold accent can be found on the base, where a 10th anniversary commemorative stamp reminds you of its special story. This stunning, hand-painted detail gives this everyday dinnerware the beauty of more formal china. While Oiva dinnerware is loved for being microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe, these special edition pieces should only be hand washed and not used in the microwave to preserve the hand-painted gold trim.
The piece also comes with a celebratory gold sticker, which proclaims "Together for years to come:" an ode to the way a lovingly mad and beautifully served beverage or meal brings people together.
Care: Hand wash only. Not suitable for use in microwave.
