Browse our a wide range of handcrafted dining accessories, from hand-thrown ceramic plates to recycled wine glasses. Whether you’re holding a dinner party, entertaining family, or enjoying a cosy night in, your dinnerware might just crank your evening up a notch. Artisans from around the world have shown off their skills and created an eclectic range of hand blown glasses, contemporary recycled aluminium serving dishes, hand-painted bowls and gorgeous serving trays made from reclaimed wood. All our suppliers ensure workers are fairly compensated and pride themselves on producing unique handcrafted items that are made with love.

Ethical Crockery

Our range of gorgeous rainbow crockery includes plates, bowls, jugs, mugs, condiment sets and more. Each piece is hand painted in Thailand in an ethical factory. The vibrant rainbow glaze is perfect for brightening up your breakfast table or injecting a bit of rainbow magic into your favourite cup of fair trade tea. The large Fairtrade rainbow dinner plates are perfect for family suppers, injecting a bit colour to even the greyest days. All the rainbow dinnerware is dishwasher and microwave safe so is ideal for everyday use. The pasta bowls are great for indulging in a steaming bowl of noodle soup or nutritious salad. Why not try filling one with quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, green leaves, toasted seeds, a handful of olives and a good drizzle of olive oil. Let your inner chef get creative (you could even show us a snap on Instagram or Twitter).

The smaller plates are ideal to use as lunch plates, side plates or salad plates, and the matching salad serving bowl means you can really add some colour to your next dinner party or family lunch. Combine the small plates, salad bowls (also great as breakfast bowls), cups and saucers and you get the perfect breakfast place settings. They match the toast rack, teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl. And as the whole range is dishwasher safe you’ll have no trouble getting them clean in time for afternoon tea and cake.

If you have little ones to cater for the organic Bambu Baby’s bowl is the perfect dinnerware set for smaller hands. Made from a single piece of bamboo, there's no lacquer or glue, just natural material. The natural shape of the bamboo lends itself beautifully to make a stable bowl, perfect for small hands feeding themselves as it's less like to tip over. Plus being naturally stain resistant, hypoallergenic and anti-microbial, it's the perfect material for food presentation and it is also BPA and PVC free.

If you are looking for tableware and glassware more suited for drinks and nibbles or a dinner party, our range of recycled glasses, trays and serving dishes are an ethical way to add a bit of eco-elegance to your party. The stunning range of fairtrade aluminium enamelled serving dishes and bowls are perfect for entertaining guests and look great as display items when not in use.

Recycling aluminium saves up to 90% carbon emissions compared to the process of making new, not to mention the fact that aluminium is a non-renewable resource. Thus in buying these hand cast, ethically produced items you are getting high quality, durable, one of a kind craftsmanship that is as good for the earth as it is for you. You can even comment on its waste reducing credentials when guests inevitably comment on the beautiful bowls you are serving their tortilla chips from.

The vibrant turquoise nibble set comes on a handmade wooden tray and features 3 bowls with matching spoons. Use for serving nuts and olives with a pre-dinner glass of sparkling wine, stylishly displaying condiments on the dining table or even dishing up individual desserts.

Recycled Glasses

The fairly traded, handblown glassware is made in Bolivia from 100% recycled glass. These planet friendly glasses are reassuringly heavy and dishwasher safe so are just as suited to everyday use as entertaining guests.

There are many different types of wine glasses. Crystal wine glasses, traditionally made with lead, although you can now buy lead-free crystal made using a combination of other minerals, may be able to be spun into thin yet strong glasses with plenty of sparkles. But they can't go in the dishwasher, are generally very expensive and certainly don't have the same eco credentials as our ethical range.

Our sustainable wine glasses come in two sizes. White wine glasses hold 200ml while the red wine glasses hold a generous 250ml. Each one is hand blown and so completely unique, the slightly green colour of the glasses makes for lovely table decoration and really compliments a rustic, natural themed décor or casual outdoor dining experience.

If you prefer stemless wine glasses the tumblers have the perfect balloon shape to collect your wine aromas and are large enough to accommodate a nice glass of pinot noir, chilled water or a refreshing gin and tonic. They hold 350ml making them excellent everyday glasses. Stemless glasses require less height to store, are contemporary in design and versatile in their usage. Air bubbles and small "imperfections" add individual charm to each one-of-a-kind piece, plus we think this set of four is great value for money.

So next time you pour yourself a glass of wine choose a glass that’s responsible, sustainable and uniquely beautiful. Now you just need to find yourself a well-stocked wine cellar and get wine tasting.

Serving trays

Bambu serving trays are made from naturally sustainable bamboo, which is naturally stain resistant, hypoallergenic and anti-microbial, making it the perfect material for food presentation.

The small serving tray is the perfect size to replace your usual porcelain dinner plate. They look great on any table and are ideal for outdoor dining. Meanwhile, the large tray is big enough to carry food and drinks to and from the table or lay out a sharing platter for everyone to enjoy.

The Ceder hex trays also make wonderful serving platters. Their unusual hexagonal shape and eco-friendly credentials make them stylish as well as practical and planet friendly. Inspired by the shape of honey combe you can neatly fit several trays together to make a great buffet style centrepiece to your dining table.
