Collection Bhar

Bhar is a traditional disposable teacup made from terracotta.

The teacup is at the centre of centuries-old traditions in which potters recognise their traditional importance in life, in which customers taste the spiritual and valuable heritage when drinking chai in Bhar, and in which tea sellers are honoured to serve traditions.
Collection Bhar shares the results of the ethnographic research in Kolkata in the publication "A Journey To Sustainability Thinking". A set of postcards and posters illustrate the beauty of the traditional craft in Kolkata and India.
