Practical, sturdy and full of life, this hand-painted teapot is a delightful addition to any tea-tray. Made using dishwasher and microwave-safe ceramics, this teapot was made in Thailand under ethical, fair-trade conditions. Each one is hand-painted with an eye-catching rainbow aesthetic, with horizontal lines of colour on the outside and a plain green on the inside.
This delightful rainbow pottery is made in a medium size ceramics factory in Lampang, northern Thailand. The factory has been running for about 20 years and a WFTO auditor found that most workers are happy with conditions there, are paid on time and consider it a comfortable workplace. Many of them have been working there for over 15 years. The factory provides work for many people in the local area who otherwise would find it hard to find jobs. Its most unusual feature is that it encourages the recruitment of transsexuals. Working conditions and safety standards were found by the WFTO auditor to be excellent.
Environmental standards are also high with managed disposal of waste water (the main disposal product). Water is collected in rainwater barrels and there are coolers to keep any unfinished paints
