“We wanted tableware that looked like us; that was durable and desirable, with the desire to bring people together around the table.”
The story behind Diche began when co-founders Delphine and Mathieu got married. Throughout the first few years of living together, they had been quite content with a mismatched collection of ceramics; perfect for the two of them or when friends were passing through. However, over the years, the desire for a full collection grew. One that would reflect where they had found themselves in life at present. And so, the journey began…
When first embarking on this hunt for a full set of dinnerware, they didn’t anticipate it would be so tricky. After all, what they were looking for didn’t seem particularly outlandish: pretty, quality tableware, with timeless colours, made in Europe, without breaking the bank.” Sadly, finding a full collection of such pieces proved much more difficult than they’d anticipated.
Like any true creatives, they saw this hurdle as an opportunity. Joining forces with three of their dear friends, they challenged themselves to launch their own brand of tableware. For months, they spent time meeting with artisans and craftspeople from Andalusia to Portugal, learning about everything from the raw material to the process of throwing, painting, and glazing each piece. Soon, their journey took them to Copenhagen to take a workshop for a hand’s on approach to learn the technique behind the craft.
Eventually, they found themselves where you see them now! With a gorgeous collection of tableware, made of simple and natural ingredients: clay, water, exquisite technique, and of course – colour! These joyful dishes have each been crafted by skilled artisans and are sure to delight everyone who has the pleasure of taking a seat at the table.
