As much as you might like to feel the warmth of your coffee through the mug on your cold fingers the sensation can be scorching hot initially. The Dreps Porcelain Cup comes with a sort of inlaid sleeve that cushions your digits until the vessel cools down.
David Geckeler's thermos has been sculpted with elegant channels impressed into the sides and connected by a loop at the base. These slits are filled exactly with the application of a flexible strip of silicone that fits neatly up the shaft of the teacup.
This arrangement is different to the usual horizontal band sleeve but much more practical. It provides a place for your fingertips to grip on either side and can be shifted slightly once the Dreps Porcelain Cup is comfortable enough for the touch.
