SOMA is made from the highest quality materials right down to the shatterproof, BPA free plastic. Compared to others we've tried - lightweight and has a super chic sustainable bamboo handle. SOMA is great for entertaining - KC has received so many compliments since replacing her water pitcher with this one.
