Hand Painted Water Jug ‘Truck Art’
A hand painted water jug inspired by the colourful truck art from Pakistan. Made of stainless steel this pitcher is highly durable and perfect for summer dining, picnics or to use as a flower vase. We simply love these pretty pitchers and use them regularly.
Part of our Pakistani Truck Art collection that celebrates Pakistani art heritage, where drivers decorate their vehicles in centuries old motifs symbolic of stories, poetry and myth. This practise began in Karachi with drivers attracting attention to their vehicles to secure transport work and also to create a moving moment of home and what was important to them on their travels. The fashion for truck art became popular amongst hippies in the 60’s and 70’s.
Each jug comes with care tag and a Pretty Tiffin postcard- perfect for gifting.
