I had the immense privilege of being able to discover India with our son Biel. It was a very special trip, mother and son in a magical country.
On our last night, at dinner, we were served water in these copper cups. How beautiful!
In India it's traditional to eat with metal plates and glasses. The most sustainable that can be as they last a lifetime.
We named the cup “Melquíades” in homage to this charming character, a gypsy of Indian origin, who brings the latest inventions to Macondo village in masterpiece book “Cien Años de Soledad” by Gabriel García Márquez.
