Soma’s new BPA-free plastic ten-cup water pitcher ($39), with a handcrafted Oregon white-oak handle, doubles as a sustainable filter. And in case you were still worried about its carbon footprint, fear not: It’s made from a biodegradable coconut-shell carbon and plant-based plastic.
These salt and pepper shakers ($46) are a clever spin on Heath Ceramics’ iconic bud vase--and an ideal hostess gift, we might add.
Screen-printed in San Francisco with water-based inks, Jenny Pennywood’s tea towels ($24 to $28 each) bring a graphic element to any kitchen.
Five Mountains’ handblown glass teapot ($20) has a spiral spout filter and a double wall that provides extra insulation to keep tea hotter longer.
This locally produced apron ($124), constructed from White Oak Mill American-made denim, is the result of a design collaboration between Craftsman and Wolves and the cult denim line Self Edge. The partial slit up the front makes room for bending and maneuvering your way around the kitchen.
We’ve been ogling craftsman Galen Garretson’s 8.5-inch chef’s knife ($400), handmade with an amboyna burl wood handle. Consider this custom order a perfect registry item.
