Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Carafes” and we’ve got loads of them.

In France, asking for a carafe of water shows the waiter you’d like your drink from the tap instead of from an expensive bottle of sparkling water. Carafes typically hold water or wine, but can also be used to serve coffee and bottomless martinis. In glass and ceramic, we’re finding carafes all across Krrb.
