I dropped in at the Pacific Cornetta offices near Portland, Oregon, yesterday, to meet Bill the marketing guy. The company had already sent me some of their insulated mugs and thermos flasks to replace the ones that got swept overboard on the Atlantic. I’d chosen sensible, outdoorsy looking ones in stainless steel and camouflage.
But surrounded yesterday by shelf-fuls of pretty, jazzy, colourful patterns I gave in to girliness, and when they offered me the pick of the product range I went for bright jewel colours and fun patterns. My favourite is a purple sparkly mug, like a constellation of stars in an indigo sky. In mid-Pacific, it will brighten up my day.
