In the past, farmers from Northern China used naturally dried HULUs (gourds) to scoop water and wash rice. Tableware and eating utensils were considered essential family belongings that connected everyone to the same table, symbolizing harmony and a sense of home.
In Feng-Shui, the gourd serves as the instrument to block the evil and invite the good. And the shape of the gourd also resembles the Chinese character of “吉(Ji)” – meaning good fortune. Using high quality acrylic, HULU Salt & Pepper Set serves such as the lucky charm and a happy element on the dining table.
A family of simple teacups which initially seem identical but soon show their own subtle personality. The basic silhouette of "Persona" is a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional Chinese tea cup with lid. Closer inspection reveals a series of individual texture like patterns which are almost more tactile than visual.
The true quality of these cups is only fully appreciated once held in the hand or up against the light, when the translucency of the delicate porcelain accentuates the patterns.
Carnivale is a stunning new range of fine white china porcelain teaware featuring six different vibrant pastel shades. The combination of colour and wonderful French design ethic is further enhanced by 22K gold lining, creating a look of elegant sophistication.
