every day rituals...

The older you get, the more you realise how important beautiful every day objects are.

A special cup or plate can make every meal or drink just that little more special. Even though in the morning I just dunk a teabag,and run out of the door, my mugs are always bone china.

If I was a coffee drinker like Our Frances, my heart would be beating just that little bit faster looking at this Yield French Press. She makes her coffee in a little press because it reminds her of her my uncle john. He would have loved this too. He would have loved everything Yield make to be fair!

The heavy walled ceramic body will maintain a consistent temperature of your coffee throughout the brewing process. This sleek ceramic press is currently available in 850 mil or 1.5 L . These wonderful Yield French Presses are made in partnership with a Fair Trade ceramics house in an ancient village near Hanoi, Vietnam. Yeild's manufacturing partners boast fair worker pay, ethical and supportive working conditions and a 700 year history of ceramics production passed down through generations. The facility is run by a descendent of Nguyen Thanh Chau, deemed a national treasure by the late King Le in 1737.

Andrew Deming and Rachel Gant began working together in 2012 after meeting at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Their work spans Rachel's background in architecture and industrial design and Andrew's background in graphic design and design strategy. Together they've defined an approach to design that's both minimal and warm, meaningful and accessible.

We all need to treat ourselves sometimes!
