For two centuries, Manchester was cotton and cotton was Manchester. So significant was the city’s role in the global trade that it was given the nickname Cottonopolis.
Plenty of evidence of this towering past still exists in the exuberance and confidence of its Victorian architecture.
The C Mug depicts an orderly civic culture emerging from the sooty and unhealthy deprivation that underwrote the profits made through cotton manufacture.
Each 380 ml fine bone china C Mug is designed here in Manchester then screen printed and hand-rolled in the UK’s ceramic heartland Stoke-on-Trent.
Like Mancunians, these mugs are made of strong stuff, so are fine to put in the dishwasher and microwave.
