Every Coton Colors piece comes to life through the work of our Design Team in Tallahassee, Florida. From the shape fashioned from a ball of clay to the colors, patterns, and textures, we artfully design our products from start to finish. The mug that has been years in the making. After years of begging from her little sister, Creative Director, Kyle Johnson Smith, finally created a Mint Stripe Mug that her sister dreamt about. The hand painted design is the perfect compliment to the Emerald Series. Sip your morning (or mid-afternoon) coffee like a Johnson.
