What is rice husk anyway? It is the outermost layer of protection encasing a rice grain. It is converted into a useful material by being combined with natural resin(with no added chemicals) to make a hard, durable biodegradable substance which is ideal for making cups and other tableware.
Look after it and it will last for years. Light, Durable, Comfortable, Stylish, Strong, Easy to clean (no staining) and biodegradable. In other words, you can’t go wrong! Cadiz..... Just the name is so romantic. A port city in Andalusia SE Spain, Cadiz has ancient roots founded by the Phoenicians which gives it around 5000 years of continuous human habitation. The design on this cup is reminiscent of the tiled floors still found in homes in the Old City.
As you sip from this cup, take pause: imagine strolling through the winding narrow lanes, touch the walls and stones on the old buildings and think of who has done the same before you from the day the rock was first created millennia ago.
