Our bottles and glasses are made of 99.7% pure copper. Each product is shaped from a single sheet of pure copper with no joints or seams and capped with a leak-proof lid, also made of pure copper. We do not use any heavy metals or aluminum in the production process. Besides, our bottles are TÜV Rheinland tested for their copper purity. The outer layer of the bottles and glasses is coated with food safe lacquer. It is a protective covering that prevents tarnishing and discolouring and makes the bottles & glasses shine. From the inside, the bottles and glasses are kept completely raw, unprocessed and uncoated.
Yes. Each piece is handcrafted by our artisans using traditional techniques. Our products are perfectly imperfect, nuanced to be beautiful, like nature, where no two things are ever the same. You may notice some irregularities and imperfections in the finishing – just how natural, handmade products have to be.
Our products have been tested for:
Copper content = 99.7% pure high grade copper as per to the test report.

Food Safety = Bottle contents as well as Lacquer used on outer surface have been proven to be completely food safe.
You can of course drink water immediately after pouring it into the copper bottles or glasses. However, to get the full benefits of copper, we suggest you fill up your bottle or glass at the night before and start by drinking a cup in the morning to cleanse and detoxify your body. Enjoy the rest of the water throughout the day.
Alternatively, you can also enjoy copper water benefits by storing water for at least 4 hours.
It is most likely you will just experience the smooth, silky taste of pure, clean water. However, over a period of months you may get a hint of a copper taste. This would probably be due to a slight patina build-up inside the bottle. If this happens, it’s time to clean your bottle. Simply follow the cleaning instructions or watch our cleaning video.
We recommend simple drinkable tap water. You can even store any type of still water in your copper water bottle – filtered water or even bottled water. In case of hot water, please make sure the water is not boiling. You will probably notice the greatest difference with tap water, which is generally the least alkaline and in need of the most care. Although tap water is generally fine in most first-world cities, you may want to filter your water before pouring it into your copper water bottle.
As Ayurveda followers, we recommend that you only store still water in your bottle. Copper, just like any other precious metal, could react with acidic liquids (anything with a pH of less than 7) or milk based fluids. If you want to flavour your water, you can gladly add this to the glass once the copper water has been poured from the bottle.
We do not recommend pouring hot water or other liqids in your copper bottle as the copper may react to the heat and the acidity of those ingredients. We recommend still water that is in room temperature.
