With a long history of being involved in supporting other non-profit initiatives, Alessi is proud to be associated with (RED) and has a heightened awareness of the impact every contribution makes.
Alessi contributes a portion of the purchase price from the (PRODUCT)RED “You” tea infuser to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, which can provide 5 days of life-saving HIV medication.
The Tea infuser "You", designed by Miriam Mirri has enriched the family of the objects that have hearts as its icon of reference. On the one hand, the conical shape and elongated of You facilitates filling and emptying the contents, on the other hand it makes the Tea infuser suitable to be used with any mug. Its tip, which could easily become clogged, is solid while the perforations begin at the empty portion to facilitate emptying it after use.
Tea infuser in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
