Real people behind endless possibilities.
A Genuine Manufacturer™ is a company that actually makes its own high-quality products.
Most dinnerware companies aren’t dinnerware manufacturers. This distinction is important. Despite web sites, catalogs, and the talented sales representatives showing off their collections — many dinnerware companies no longer actually make what they sell.
Rather, they source from nameless and often unknown, unsupervised factories located in any corner of the world where labor can be had cheap. Orders come packaged in boxes with the sourcing company’s name on it, and, despite its origin being suspect, the price has been so right for so long we stopped noticing the lack of available options and the denigration of consistency and quality.
And somewhere along the line all of this became okay.
But we never stopped manufacturing. We make high quality dinnerware in a wealth of available options — and have for more than a century.
