Copperware FAQs

Is your copperware made from pure copper? Yes, our cups are 100% pure solid copper. Many other copper mug manufacturers use copper blends, copper plating, or alternative metals because real copper is expensive. But real copper enhances the drink and is what consumers should expect. Our mugs are made with 22 gauge copper.

Why is your copperware expensive? Our copperware is a luxury collection made from 100% pure solid copper, and is ethically hand-made in the USA. We use the best premium quality only. We don't mass produce, nor do we believe in outsourcing to developing countries for cheaper pricing (which also means less ethical working conditions).

Is copper safe? There are many different grades of copper because many manufacturers use copper blends, copper alloys, and copper plating. That is why the quality of copper is important. Drinking from 100% pure solid copper has Ayurvedic health properties and has been implemented for centuries. Maintaining your copper cups is important. We don't recommend using a copper water bottle, because when tightening the lid, the copper is scraping upon itself, which can leave tiny metal shards in your water. Other products like copper IUDs are foreign objects inserted into the body and contain plastic. Women have issues with this product because of the plastic, the quality of the copper, and because it's a foreign object inside the body. When the body detects foreign materials it does its best to eject it from the body. Please do not compare the issues women have had with copper/plastic IUD devices with drinking from 100% pure solid copper cups.

What are the Ayurvedic benefits of drinking from copper cups? Copper exhibits anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties, and may assist with skin regeneration, strengthen the immune system, and promote healing. The water absorbs copper which also helps iron absorb into the body. A major sign of copper deficiency is anemia—iron and copper work side by side.

Do copper cups require special care? Copper does tarnish naturally over time and is still ok to drink from. Handwash only, do not put copper in the dishwasher. If you'd like to keep up the appearance of your cups we recommend the following:

 

  1. Rinse the copper  cup in warm water.

  2. Take a soft cloth or sponge and dish soap, and gently scrub until any debris has been removed.

  3. Rinse again to remove the soap residue.

  4. Dry the copper thoroughly, ensuring that there is no leftover moisture in cracks or crevices.

  5. Set aside to air-dry.

To remove tarnish and natural patina, we recommend the following:

  1. Pour some sea salt or pink Himalayan salt on 2 x lemon wedges.

  2. Gently scrub the inside of the cups with the salted lemon wedges, in a circular motion.

  3. Rinse in warm water and dry thoroughly.
