Design meets spirituality: Water bottle by Yunuén Hernández | Mexico City // World Wide Things Collection


Drinking a lot of water isn’t just healthy, it also has a healing effect on our soul. Thanks to the Botijo water bottle, it’s easy to drink enough and look good while doing it – be it at your desk, in the kitchen or next to your yoga mat. Created by designer Yunuén Hernández, Botijo is a reinterpretation of traditional Mexican jarrito earthenware jugs.

The container with an integrated beaker is made out of terracotta and keeps water fresh for a long time because of the porous nature of the material. For an invigorating sip of fresh water in all situations.
