Seeking unique tableware that’s built to last? KRA Sanctuary curates timeless, modern designed handmade ceramic tableware from their partner artists in Thailand. They source from a third-generation family-run factory in Lampang, a province near Chiang Mai famous for its expertise in ceramic production.
Each piece of handcrafted dinnerware, tabletop accessories and serving ware has been handcrafted and curated for quality and lasting appeal in the home. Their glazes are naturally and responsibly derived from the environment around us — brown pigments are made from iron, for example, and blue from cobalt. This prevents harmful chemicals from leaching into your food and beverages, making our ceramics safe for you, and for the earth.
Kra Sanctuary truly believes in investing in versatile pieces that will be loved for years rather than following trends and producing excess wasted consumer items. Unlike plastic or wooden dinnerware, ceramics last far longer and are also leach-proof and water-resistant. With proper care, you’ll find that Kra Sanctuary’s artisan-made, small-batch ceramics can last you a lifetime, so you will no longer have to replace your bowls, plates, and other dishes every so often. What’s more, they make for beautiful talking points at your dinner table!
Currently an online, home-based business, Kra Sanctuary are happy to arrange private viewing appointments for those who would like to take a close look and feel of the pieces or need help selecting the perfect set for their table. Reach out to them on Kra Sanctuary or email [email protected] to make an appointment for in-person viewing or check out their Instagram @kra.sanctuary for more inspiration!
