About Mooshi

Now, we don't make tea bags or find exotic coffees to bring to the public (although we enjoy consuming both of those). Our passion lives in creating ceramic mugs that hold these precious herbs together, as part of the vehicle to assist you along in your day. All designs will be carefully crafted by internationally known fine artist & creative Genesis the Greykid – who also shares this love of tea and coffee with us…. making our mugs unique and deeply special.

We appreciate you stopping by and humbly bring to you our shared love:
“Mooshi Mugs”.


Here's a little info to nerd out to :)

When Were Coffee Mugs Invented?

The first coffee mugs were used during the Neolithic period (3900 BC – 1700 BC). These cups were crafted from wood or animal skulls and were used for water, spirits, mead, and wine. Coffee wouldn't be discovered until thousands of years later.

Thankfully, we stopped using animal skills and wood by 3000 BC. With the rise of metalwork, coffee mugs were made instead from gold, silver, bronze, and lead. These cups were almost impossible to drink from because the exterior would get extremely hot when the coffee was poured.

It was ceramics that changed coffee mugs forever during the Middle Ages. The timing was perfect as coffee was becoming the drink of choice throughout the world. Ceramic is the best material for coffee mugs since it can be painted in a variety of colors, washed in the dishwasher, and is able to withstand hot temperatures.

When Was Ceramic Invented?

The history of ceramics can be traced back to 3500 BC in ancient Mesopotamia, India, and Egypt. The clay had to be shaped by hand until the invention of the pottery wheel, which was used to make more elaborate creations such as: vases, sculptures, bowls, plates, cups, and large pots for storing water.

Artifacts from the Holy Land

Ancient people used ceramics to create art and establish culture. They could show off their artistry, using their fingers, sticks, or strings to add texture and patterns to their creations. Potters would even mark their ceramic cups, pots, and vases with a logo that identified the object as being made by their tribe.

Today, many coffee mugs are made from ceramics. This material is durable, resistant to rust, looks elegant, and is easy to clean as it's often dishwasher safe.
