We've just received a delivery of some of our favourite and most beautiful mugs at Maiden! What's even better is that they were all made entirely in England! We do try to source as many products made here in the UK as possible and we think these mugs are excellent. The quality and finish are amazing!
The company behind these mugs is Big Tomato. Launched in 1999 with one product and one goal... to see a squirty tomato on every kitchen table in the UK. They have now sold over 500,000. To follow such an iconic product Big Tomato ventured into ceramics and soon discovered their mugs were just as popular as their tomatoes!
Most importantly Big Tomato is dedicated to the quality and long-established methods of manufacturing in the UK, following in the footsteps of the Staffordshire potteries that made English ceramics famous the world over. In 2099 Big Tomato opened their own factory in the heart of the Staffordshire Potteries; Longton, Stoke-on-Trent.
By a curious coincidence the beautiful red headed mug "cherry" is set to make her screen debut sitting atop the desk of none other than Mary Portas on tomorrow's (29/3/2012) episode of Mary's fab show MARY'S BOTTOM LINE. The great thing about this is that Mary's show is all about encouraging the UK manufacturing industry! It's great to see that Mary practises what she preaches and even drinks from a totally UK manufactured mug!!
Here is a selection from our Big Tomato range! All these mugs can be purchased online from www.maidenshop.com or from our shop on Shoreditch High Street London.
