Sobremesa Unveils Handcrafted Tableware

Sobremesa by Greenheart is unveiling new sustainable oriented tableware and kitchenware collections at the summer Atlanta Market.

The company will launch a new collection of stoneware ceramic tableware. The collection is made by Le Souk Ceramique artisans located in Tunisia. The artisans forgoe machines, decals and stencils, to freehand each piece, making them one of a kind, the company said.

A new glass collection made by the Copavic cooperative, formed in 1976 in Guatemala, will also be introduced. The line is made from discarded glass and hand blown into new recycled pieces, the company said.

The collection also includes a new line of wooden utensils made by a small co-op of “spoonmakers” located in Guatamela. Each piece, the company noted, is hand-scraped and carved from certified wood sources harvested from Lake Atitlan. A portion of the proceeds goes towards community programs such as services for the elderly.

Created by the Artesanos de San Pedro, the company will introduce a new line of wooden cutting boards. Incorporating modern techniques with traditional handcrafted quality, the company said, the artisans cut, smooth and shape each piece of teakwood into tableware. The collection uses recycled or sustainably sourced wood from the Smartwood Alliance.
