Ricco Deruta Lite Mug

A more modern version of a traditional Italian mug, quality made by world-famous ceramics makers from Deruta, Umbria.

Ceramics manufacturing and trade here traces its roots to the heyday days in the 16th century when this part of the country was the centre for ceramics production and innovation.

Until this day we have experienced artisans utilising rich local clay deposits for hand making their ceramics. But what makes these mugs truly unique is the decorative elements and style typical only to this region. You will not find it anywhere else in the world.

Ricco Deruta is one of our most popular designs and mugs are an ideal gift idea for anyone who likes artisan-made products or has Italian ancestors.
