Title_Our Ceramics_A Truly Artisanal Story
Our ceramic partner factory is tucked away on the outskirts of a small town, somewhere in the highlands of Thailand. This area has a long and successful history of ceramic production.
It truly is a gem of a factory, because its work culture and values can be summed up in a single word: ARTISANAL
This reflects the ethos of Kan, the factory founder, a woman in her mid-70’s who has single-handedly built and created a successful enterprise, over 50 years. Softly spoken and with a zen-like calmness, Kan is a force to be reckoned with.
Robyn paying Kan a visit in Thailand
Kan employs locals only (some 50 of them), many with disabilities.
She works with absolutely no automated machinery, just a few kilns, wheels and drying racks.
Tens of artisans mixing clay, throwing colour, moulding and hand spinning … and everything is perfectly … imperfect!
The ceramic workroom
The colour of our TH91 Duck Egg Blue Porcelain Table Lamp for example,
simply could not be recreated.
What we got instead was the same base shape,
but in TH98L Moody Blue (darker) as well as TH99L Pacific Blue (lighter).

We have also introduced our TH96L Verde Green base,
in the same beautiful shape and dimension as TH91.
Plus the TH97L Ochre,
a rich, new addition to the ceramic range.
These new ceramics perfectly complement our existing ceramic range, and provide a timeless alternative to mass-produced ceramics.

We are proud to support Kan and the rest of her artisanal team.
