Dibbern Fine China

Dibbern was founded in Germany in 1965 and has been one of the leading brands for innovative and timeless tableware ever since.

The fine china designs combine functionality along with elegance. The brand eschews fashion trends, and embraces a more timeless view, with products reflecting the lines and shape of the “Bauhaus-style” typically attributed to the 1930´s. 

The Dibbern factories in Bavaria use traditional hand-made production methods to create tableware which is not only aesthetically decorative but also unique in its durability. The hands on techniques enable a much better material density, which increases the so-called “edge impact resistance” by as much as 6 to 7 times. In plain speak, it's not so easy to break a piece of Dibbern.

Dibbern is a popular choice on our gift registry, and the combination of beauty and durability makes it a smart choice for everyday use.

Such Rare Beauty - Art Scarves by Julia and Joanne Ritson

We so admire the Ritson sisters. From a family of artists, Joanne and Julia Ritson share a number of artistic qualities: scale, colour, and an eye for fine detail. Julia Ritson explores abstraction, adding a vibrant chapter to a century-old tradition. Joanne Ritson brings a 21st Century perspective to the venerable history of landscape painting, that of virtual not physical worlds.

These exquisite limited edition silk scarves are an extension of their painted works.  Each has an extravagantly generous sweep at 97cm square, with hand rolled edges. And limited really does mean limited in this case - editions of only 20 or 25 scarves are ever created from individual paintings. The presentation of each scarf is a work of art in itself. Each scarf is wrapped in unbuffered tissue to preserve the silk and boxed in a buckram covered black archive box. The 26cm square box is debossed with the artist’s name. The card enclosed with the scarf includes the artist’s story, image of the original painting, signature and edition number of the scarf.
