The trend of investing in good looking tableware (for casual or formal occasions) is now in and we love the upgrade! If you think we're hinting at the same ol' porcelain, bone china or earthenware sets, we aren't. Think of this local, Bengaluru-based brand as a stepping "stone" to better crockery.
Tattva Handmade, founded by Deepa is rooted in bringing the five elements of the earth (tattva) to life through its rustic yet elegant stoneware collections of dinnerware, drinkware and serveware. All of these are handcrafted and hand-painted, of course in lovely earthy colours and nature-inspired designs. You will find speckled Dinner Plates (INR 2,000) in beige, cream, burnt orange, browns and terracotta. Bamboo lassi glasses, Dabara Tumbler sets (INR 600) (for hot coffee), Chip and Dip platters, Casseroles, Noodle Bowls and everything in between!
Our favourite part about investing in stoneware for everyday use is the durability factor! It is more sturdy, thicker and affordable compared to its counterparts made of finer materials, including earthenware. All of Tattva's collection has a shiny glaze (food grade) with a few pieces that boast of textured finish. It is easy to maintain, versatile and can go in the microwave, dishwasher, oven, and freezer.
Tattva also offers customisations and bulk orders. The team will sit down with you, hear your thoughts, create samples which you can feel and make sure the final product is as you’d imagined. You can place your orders through Instagram. They ship across the country.
