Ceramic Water Filter
Meet the wonderful Walter Water Filter (and then say that three times fast). This sturdy, one-of-a-kind thirst quencher is hand-built and hand-painted in Brooklyn for countertop appeal—but it's so much more than a pretty face. The top chamber takes your tap water and then lets gravity do the rest. The base will fill with crisp, clean water that'll rival it's bottled peers (and involves 0 waste to boot). That’s all thanks to the included charcoal filter with a 2-year lifespan (we did the math and it’s—3,000 gallons—gasp). Every single Walter is handmade by a father daughter team and may well be the prettiest hydration-forward heirloom piece around.
