These large, 18 oz heirloom quality Mule Mugs are completely handmade -- formed and hammered -- from thick, 100% recycled solid Copper. They are handmade by artisans in Mexico, and designed in Texas.
A smaller, 12 oz Mule mug can be found here.
These objects are made in the traditional way, in a method that began began in Mesoamerica and has been practiced and passed along continuously for over 1,000 years. These mugs are finely made from thick, 100% Copper, unlike those other mules on the market. They may age and patina with time, but will not lose their copper color like plated cups. They are ergonomically designed, with a nice weight to them.
Copper, with its warm glow and inherent patinas that change over time, has been a part of the human hearth and civilization for thousands of years, used in ancient health, healing and spiritual practices around the world for a wide range of benefits. It is a naturally clean material with strong antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.
Sold individually. A pair makes a perfect gift set coupled with our Copper 8" Tray.
