Design and history
Our colorful charming jugs and decanters are made with a careful sense of aesthetics, details and quality. Beautifully decorated with adorable hand painted floral motifs and inspired by the magnificent Turkish nature and traditions. In shape and style, the jugs reflect Turkish cultural history – with designs, handicraft and techniques going back to ancient times. Hence, the circle shaped Shiwinni decanter, illustrates the Hittite people’s worship of the Sun God Ra, as well as their, more down to earth, enthusiasm for wine and wine production. The Hittite decanter is, in our version, decorated with lovely simple red tulips, the Turkish national flower. The Turks are a lively and passionate people, who loves combining patterns, symbols and decorations, across time and culture and in a multitude of colors. Thereby they are creating new and exciting designs and trends, whilst keeping traditions and history alive.
