Branded mugs can serve as a practical and cost-effective way to market a business.
The origin of the word “mug” is not clear, but there are several theories that attempt to explain its origin. Here is one of the stories:
Once upon a time, in a small village, there lived a group of artisans who were known for their pottery-making skills. They made various types of containers such as jugs, pots, and cups to hold liquids and food items. One day, a traveler stopped by the village and asked the artisans to make him a special type of container. Once made he could use it for his morning drink. The traveler was an avid tea drinker, and he wanted a sturdy container that would keep his tea warm for a longer time.
The artisans got to work and soon came up with a beautiful and functional container made of thick ceramic material with a handle for easy grip. He was so pleased with the container that he took it with him on his travels showing it to everyone he met. People who saw the container were impressed by its design and functionality, and they started asking the artisans to make them similar containers.
Soon, the word about the new type of container started spreading, and people started calling it the “mug“. This was after the old English word “mugg,” which meant “mask” or “face.” The name was inspired by the handle on the side of the container, which looked like a face. People would hold the mug by the handle and bring it close to their faces to drink. Just like they would do with a mask.
And that’s how the mug got its name. Over time, the name stuck and the mug became a popular household item, used by people all over the world to hold their hot drinks and soups.
Note: This is a fictional story meant to explain the origin of the word “mug” in an interesting and entertaining way. The actual origin of the word is still unclear.
