Quimet pitcher86 €
The first reference of the Behomm Shop for its symbolism. It is the most sustainable product of all as it cools water without electricity and it speaks of our land, of our tradition... so we do not forget where we come from and where we need to return… to take care of our planet.
We named it “Quimet”, a traditional Catalan grandfather name in homage to our ancestors.
The pitcher is deeply rooted in the Iberian rural culture. The farmer when working in the fields always took the pitcher with him because the pottery kept the water cool when out in the burning sun.
It should be placed in the sun as it must “sweat” and the evaporation of this external water will cool the internal one. It is glazed only at the top for this purpose.
There are many shapes depending on the use. This is the reaper’s pitcher, thin and tall, because they were tied around the waist while cutting the wheat.
One drinks directly from the pitcher, without a glass and without sucking. Have fun! Watch the video of Agust, founder of Behomm, showing how to do it :-)

Please note that the clay is not 100% white. It has some impurities, such as small “freckles” in the glazed part.
