My Gifts Trade (exclusive distributor of Costa Nova in the UK) will present Plano tableware by Portugeuse manufacturer, Costa Nova at Spring Fair 2020. Plano is produced from the surplus materials of Costa Nova’s own factory in Portugal.
“Evocative of traditional, hand-turned studio pottery, these beautifully unique pieces are manufactured to a very high standard and designed to enhance unforgettable moments at the table,” says Nikki Courtney, creative director of My Gifts Trade.
She continues: “With sustainability running so high on the world’s agenda and high in consumers’ minds, the impeccable eco-friendly credentials of this beautiful new collection are sure to be an important selling point for stockists.”
The collection is manufactured of Eco-Gres, a registered trademark. Products under this label are guaranteed to be made of non-hazardous recycled materials, derived from ceramic surplus and other additives. They are guaranteed to be food-safe, complying with International Standards and in line with European directives 2006/12/CE and 2008/98/CE, which are oriented toward transforming the EU into a ‘recycling society’.
