Alpen Fraulein was founded in London in 2012 by London based friends and photographer-team Nici and Karin. The aesthetics and vision in our work is influenced by our multicultural lifestyle, a modern interpretation of Austrian traditions and the culture we experience in Britain.
Alpen Fraulein works with some of the UK’s best manufacturers to deliver an unparalleled quality. Our mugs are illustrated and designed by us, and hand-crafted in the home of fine bone china in Stoke-On-Trent. Whether you're a tea or coffee lover, it tastes best from our dog mugs starring (wo)man's best friends. Made in the heart of Britain's ceramic centre, Stoke-on-Trent, these beautiful white fine bone china mugs feature jet black and gold screen printed illustrations of dogs.
Our dog mugs are all hand-crafted. It’s important to us that British-made materials and manufacturing is used, keeping production close to home. At the moment, our collection contains four designs: a bulldog, a dachshund, a poodle and an adorable pug. We plan to expand to an additional four breeds in spring and additional four next autumn.
