They are thick, sturdy, and tightly woven. The handles extend comfortably to our widest mouth mugs and the center fits easily into our narrowest. Don't own a tea strainer? It's time to up your zero waste game, tea bags are out of fashion, friends. With style and grace, this tea strainer will keep you warm and well for many years.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Since the company's inception, about 20 artisan workshops have become independent. Noah's Ark started in 1986, in one room of a family house in Moradabad. Businessman Samuel Masih observed that exporters and middlemen were taking advantage of handicraft artisans. He started Noah's Ark to promote these artisans and their crafts.
