This listing is for the complete set of SIX Retroviral mugs: ONE EACH of Herpes, HIV, Influenza, Measles, Rabies, and Smallpox. (You can see close-ups of all six designs in our other listings.)

Our mugs are designed in London and hand decorated in Stoke-on-Trent. They have a generous 375ml capacity, and are 9cm (approx. 3.5 inches) tall. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

All items are carefully packaged to get to you in perfect condition. This set of six comes in a 6-mug box, where the mugs are NOT individually boxed. If individual boxes are required, please message us before ordering. Please note that any customs charges (for non-UK orders) are your responsibility and are not included in the postage fee.


Retroviral is a range of six high quality mugs decorated with unexpected biological motifs: the microscopic structure of virus particles! Helena, the designer behind Thefty, has an academic background in biology. The collection is an artist’s spin on scientific information, designed for science geeks and design nerds alike. The collection provides some food for thought to go with your tea-break!

5p from the sale of every Retroviral mug is donated to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a premier research institute whose mission is to improve health in the UK and around the world.
