Forrest & Love
Forrest & Love is a small, independent family company, co-founded by entrepreneurs Shamika and Rohit, that has started a designer revolution in the field of Eco Fashion & Green Living. Although they are small they have big goals - striving at competing with some of the world’s biggest and most powerful corporations and their vision is about supporting organic over pesticides, handicrafts over machines and quality over mass market consumerism.
Forrest & Love produce a range of artisan copper water bottles and glasses - products that are not only beautiful items in their own right, but also offer strong health benefits. Studies have shown that copper is anti-bacterial, acts as an effective anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents ageing, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain.
Yogis have been drinking copper water since ancient times. In line with Ayurvedic principles, water stored in copper bottles balances the three doshas in our body (vata, kapha and pitta) by gently infusing the water with positive health properties of copper. The stored water will also turn into natural alkaline water, which helps balance our body’s pH levels.
Indian yogi, mystic and author Sadhguru (Jaggi Vasudev) says:
”Because water has memory, we are very concerned with how we store it. If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general.”
The products are designed in Munich and then hand crafted by Forrest & Love’s small family run team of artisans in India which produces exclusively for Forrest & Love under regulated processes and quality requirements. Forrest & Love also visit the facility every 3-6 months. Each item is made of pure, high-grade copper and TUV Certified for material and food safety. The bottles have a copper lid with a removable silicone seal, so are also plastic-free. Although they are described as leakproof we prefer to say ‘leak resistant’ to ensure consumers take care when transporting their bottle - it is always safer that way!
Copper is a soft metal but these beautiful items will, if well handled, last a lifetime and can be passed to the next generation. With usage the inner surface will turn darker due to oxidation, but this will not impair the water quality. The bottle can be cleaned with lemon & salt, vinegar & salt or baking powder.
SUITABLE FOR STILL WATER ONLY. NOT SUITABLE FOR CARBONATED DRINKS, FRUIT JUICES OR SQUASH.
