Benefits of using handcrafted tableware from Portugal

As well as being elegant and beautiful, our dishes are made from high quality materials. Each piece is crafted with care, ensuring that the dishes will last for many years. Another advantage of choosing dinnerware made in Portugal is that the cost of each piece is very affordable.

So when selecting a dinner service, investing in quality and a prestigious brand are decisions that pay off in the long run.

Types of handmade tableware in Portugal

When it comes to dinnerware handmade in Portugal, there are several materials that you may want to consider for your choice.

One of the most commonly used materials in Portuguese handmade dinnerware is stoneware. Stoneware is known to be durable and resistant to chipping and cracking, so it is perfect for everyday use.

Our natural stoneware plates and bowls were created to give gastronomic productions more functionality and aesthetic sense. Bring softness and delicacy to your dining table with the handcrafted plates and bowls from O Cactuu.

Porcelain is known for being delicate and fragile, but it is also very elegant and timeless. This type of material is commonly used in hotels and restaurants.

Unique Designs and Techniques

Portuguese artisans have perfected traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. The craftsmanship is clear in the unique designs and patterns, with glazes often used to add texture and colour to the pieces. The glaze has two major functions: the aesthetic component where you can choose several colours and variations, and, functionality because of the porosity of the material that otherwise would not be suitable for the storage of liquids.

But what really differentiates the Portuguese handmade dinnerware from others is the attention to detail that goes into each piece. From the hand-painted decoration to the details, Portuguese craftsmen are dedicated to producing truly unique pieces that will bring a touch of elegance to any space.

Instructions and Care for the Portuguese Handmade Dinnerware

Taking care of your dinnerware handmade in Portugal will make it last even longer. Most of the pieces can go in the dishwasher and some can even go in the microwave and oven. But like any other product, if you want to keep it looking great, hand washing is the best option.

To hand wash the handmade dishes in Portugal, we recommend using warm water and neutral detergent. Avoid using abrasive detergents or cleaning cloths to avoid scratching the surface of dinnerware.
After washing, always dry it with a soft cloth. Taking good care of your handmade dinnerware will ensure that they look as beautiful as the day you bought them!

The variety of options available is really impressive - from minimalist designs to classic designs, bold colours to neutral colours and countless glazes. Not to mention the shapes and sizes you can choose from. Plus, there is the added advantage of knowing that each piece is made with love by the best Portuguese artisans.
