Top 5 Reasons I'm In Love With
This Sustainable Dinnerware Brand

By Antoinette Fischer
| Updated On 8 September 2022

If you're anything like me, you love a cozy night in with your loved ones. You spend hours searching your favourite recipe online and channeling your inner Michelin starred chef. As your guests show up at your door with a bottle of wine, you quickly put the final touches onto your culinary masterpiece.

Everything goes according to plan until you're plating your food. You hesitate, seeing your 3 year old IKEA plates are so chipped and scratched that they are barely hanging on to their last breath of life. How embarrassing.

After seeing this minimalistic dinnerware brand called Far & Away featured on Refinery29, GQ, Glamour, and more, I took the plunge. I have to say, my guests and I are absolutely obsessed with them. If the praise of the biggest lifestyle magazines weren't enough,  here are my top 5 reasons why I can't live without my new favourite dinnerware set.

1. Stunning Minimalistic Design

To say these pieces are pretty is an understatement. The number of compliments I get from my guests are overwhelming. I love the modern lips on the plates and how they perfectly stack on my kitchen shelfs. Personally, I love the Ivory glaze as it compliments whats on the plate without taking too much attention away. Choosing more than 1 colour is also an option as the palette mixes super well together. 

2. Chip & Scratch Resistant

Right out of the box, I could feel these pieces were high quality in my hands. They felt quite a bit heavier than my old IKEA plates so that's something to keep in mind. After months of abuse and a few instances of excessive force, my Far & Away pieces have come out completely unscathed and in one piece. No chips or cutlery marks at all. This is especially impressive as mine are off-white and my old plates were full of markings from the get go. 

3. 100% Freezer, Dishwasher, Microwave, and Oven Safe

For someone like me who doesn't like to use the microwave unless absolutely necessary,  reheating leftovers from the fridge in the oven became a breeze. Definitely wouldn't dare trying this with my old plates. Dishwasher safe makes it great for cleanups as well, just make sure to check if it fits in your rack as the plates are approximately 2cm in height.

4. Artisan Crafted in Portugal

I really love how Far & Away works with artisanal markers in Portugal to bring this collection to life. The pieces are made in a region where the ceramic making tradition started over 500 years ago and has been passed down through the generations. Their entire production process is broken down on their website and it's a mix of both hand craftsmanship and machine precision. The end result is an amazing quality and consistency, with a touch of artisanal flair.

5. Sustainable Production Methods 

Far & Away is a part of the Trillion Trees Campaign where they plant trees for every order sold. Also, their production processes recycles waste and uses the kiln only once, which reduces their energy usage and carbon emissions by 50%! My package came in a 100% recyclable box and I love how Far & Away offers a sustainable alternative without compromising on design and quality.
