This is how it all began...

I was at my parents’ house one day and as usual they asked me to put the kettle on and make tea. Their house is on three levels with the kitchen on the bottom level, which means there are stairs and numerous doors to navigate to get from the kitchen back up to the lounge. I could never find two mugs that sat comfortably together in one hand and would usually have to make two trips, especially when I heard “and don’t forget the biscuits”.

On this particular day I decided to chance carrying everything in one run but ended up spilling hot tea over my hand and on my mum’s new carpet, she was not happy! This made me think that there must be an easier, better way to carry mugs. I saw tessellating mugs in my mind, ones that could be easily carried in one hand. From then on I started to notice the problem everywhere, when I was at the office, in coffee shops, visiting friends etc. A few weeks later and after much thought I sat down and began designing the Buddy Mug.

Risks and challenges

Only one more hurdle remains, funding. The design, manufacturing and distribution has been meticulously planned down to the last detail.

I do not see any risk in supporting this project.
