Meet the Maker
Inspired by my Nani's beautiful chai caddy that was a feature of her kitchen table for years, we created this caddy to be both beautiful and functional. It is light and easy to carry around — perfect for serving chai straight from your kitchen to a table of friends. The cups are just the right size for an afternoon or evening treat of sugar and caffeine. See our Chai Recipe here!
Founded in 2020, Green Heirloom is a company that produces eco-friendly, sustainable cookware and kitchen tools. With clear and significant emphasis laid on the traditions and rights of the artisanal community, Green Heirloom was founded to champion and platform artisanal craftsmanship, creating a more direct relationship between artisans and consumers.
This brass Chai Caddy has been created by artisans based out of a workshop in Kerala using a process called sand casting. Most of these artisans come from Moradabad, popularly known as the Brass City of India. While most families in Moradabad have been brass artisans for generations, the working conditions and pay they receive for their work is dismal. Through your purchase, you’ve allowed us to more equitably support these talented artisans, who are given higher pay at Green Heirloom (oftentimes 4x what they received in Moradabad) three meals a day, set working hours, and overtime pay. As you use your caddy to share chai with your friends and fam, know that your purchase goes an incredibly long way!
