Ideally sized to hold the perfect Latte or your favourite hot drink.

Tabletop Essentials

Our everyday tableware is thoughtfully designed so you can make every meal a masterpiece. Timeless ceramics for the table, from morning to evening.


Shaped for Versatility

An elegant mug designed with ergonomics in mind. Transitioning invisibly from square base to round rim, it settles cosily into the hand while the soft-edged top invites the lips.


Comfort in Hand

For tea-drinkers and coffee-drinkers alike, it delivers just the right dose of your chosen liquid comfort. Fill to the brim with latte, or shy of the top with Earl Grey.


Made to Last

Stoneware is a resistant material that retains and distributes heat, so hot drinks lasts longer. Its strength also means mugs can be stacked, cleaned in a dishwasher or warmed up in a microwave.

Our ceramics are made by a family-run factory in Portugal. They source clay locally and craft the pieces into our designed shapes. Before the pieces are completed, they are dipped in our unique glazes and single-fired, a process which minimises emissions.

Need Help? Just Ask Us.

Is your pottery food safe?

Yes, our manufacturer carries out thorough tests to ensure the clays and glazes are safe and 100% lead-free

Is is dishwasher safe?

Yes, our products can be washed daily in the dishwasher. To ensure our dishes last longer it is advisable to space them so they don’t rub or bump against each other during the cycle.

Do your dinner plates fit in a standard dishwasher without touching the top rack?

Yes, our plates have been designed to fit perfectly in standard dishwashers. We recommend rinsing off leftovers before placing them in the machine.

Can I put it in the microwave or oven?

Yes, all our stoneware products are safe to use in the oven and microwave, to a temperature of 250 ºC. Steer clear of placing pieces straight from the oven on to a cold surface, as a measure against shock resistance.

How about the freezer?

Yes, absolutely. Our ceramics have high thermal shock resistance, and will withstand temperature variations as low as -20 ºC.

Can I use it on the stove?

No. Monoware dinnerware is not suitable for stovetop cooking or for use with an open flame.
