Part of a design collaboration between HAY and artist Laila Gohar that celebrates the joy of meeting family and friends over a good meal, the Sobremesa Stripe Cookie Jar is a beautiful striped storage container designed to add a decorative edge to any table setting or kitchen worktop. Hand-painted in stoneware with a colourful striped pattern that gives each jar a unique quality, it can also be used for storing tea and coffee or non-food items.
