Maybe you don’t climb, but it would obviously make a great gift for climbers you know, not to mention a perfect fathers day gift.

These first editions are not graded for difficulty, but designed to be lifted by anyone though still requir a good pinch and therefore build strength. Obviously, enjoying a hot drink from one means you don't want to let go, so take care during this climbing exercise.

Hand made in Stoke on Trent, England.

The Pinch Hold Mug and Espresso Cup are as beautiful as they are practical. Made from quality stoneware by crafts people in one of England’s oldest pottery areas. The Pinch Hold Mug's generous proportions give you a decent sized cuppa, and the Espresso cup is designed to classic Italian standards to fit a double espresso with room for a dash of steamed milk.

An ma3t design.

You'll find the designers' mark, ma3t, proudly embossed on the bottom. ma3t are a collective formed in London, but now spread over the world. Set up partly as an outlet for their quirky creativity and partly to help fund the other side of ma3t: TEAM. TEAM aim to create seemingly commercial products and services that cause people to re-evaluate the world around them.
