A combination of design and tradition, the products of the Ceramica Made in Umbria collection are an absolutely original idea for Christmas gifts.

Ceramic bowls and cups that come from the ancient traditions of the Umbrian shops of Deruta or Gualdo Tadino updated in some details to adapt to the needs of contemporary living.

MUG is a set of stackable cups produced in Deruta da G. & P. of Gialletti and Pimpinelli. Mug cups derive from traditional convent cups, some of which are exhibited at the Ceramics Museum in Deruta, were produced by local artisan workshops for the numerous religious communities present in the area.

The classic tea set, with cups and saucers, is updated in a practical set of stackable American "mug" cups, with three different embossed decorations on which hand-made strokes of color make each cup unique. This set can be composed and extended in the number of cups you prefer, which from tradition take up the characteristic protruding handle of the convent bowls.
