The manufacturer who makes this product employs over four hundred people in Vietnam, and uses recycled earthenware materials to hand-make such items as this quirky piece. In addition to statutory wages employees receive bonuses as well as social and health insurance. An annual medical check up is available, lunch is supplied every day and workers can enjoy team outings as well as compete for sports awards in football and volley ball. Caring for the environment and their employees are main concerns, and the company has a third party audit at the factory each year to help them with ideas on how to improve the working environment. This pot is hand-painted with a natural paint and also glazed in both a gloss and a matt finish. Any waste is recycled.
