Triqis Maracas Beige Vase
Drawing its inspiration from the coconut trees on Maracas Beach in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean, the Maracas Vase is a reflection of its maker's early childhood. Handmade from a dense eco resin, akin to marble in weight and feel.
Maracas' rippled layered base resembles the pattern of the bark seen on the lower end of coconut trees, and its tubular body cascades elegantly into the air. Maracas' organic design and form give it a sculptural quality, making it the centrepiece of any interior display.
As Triqis' products are handmade, each product will be different. Air bubbles and minor bumps happen in the making and are unavoidable, making each product unique within itself, adding to its character.

All of Triqis’ products are designed and made in their studio space in Wimbledon, allowing them to keep a close eye on all facets of production. This is why 95% of their manufacturing process is human-centred, with most of their products being carefully made by hand.
All of their materials, for both product-making and shipping, are sourced from local suppliers in the UK. They aim to work with organisations also focused on design and sustainability, such as Design Museum, Design Milk, DesignBoom, and Wolf & Badger. Companies such as these firmly believe in protecting the environment, and making sustainable design accessible. Design Milk in particular promotes diversity and equity while creating a global space for sharing, supporting, and fostering creativity.
Triqis prioritises eco-materials where possible. For example, they opt to use a water-based eco resin instead of normal resin containing harmful vegetable and synthetic oils. Also, they recycle all the water they produce back into the manufacturing process. Through developing a clean and filtered system in the studio that operates independently from any main water supplies, the water they produce can be reused for manufacturing.

How to care for your vase: Although it is a hardy material, avoid dropping your vase onto hard surfaces as the impact can weaken or break the piece. Do not clean with coloured creams or soaps as they can stain the surface, clean gently with a soft cloth. To restore the surface shine polish with neutral coloured wax or buffer.
