  • About the Designer

    Archive Studio Amsterdam is a design studio focusing on high quality, durable products that are used daily. The first development of Archive Studio is a tableware collection of 19 different items. “Start small, grow slowly. That’s our philosophy. We slowly expand our archive of ceramics and make sure that each new item perfectly fits in the existing range.

    All Archive Studio products are handmade in a Vietnamese workshop. The EU has recognised the cooperation with this small producer as a program supporting the local economy and has exempt us from paying import duties. “We visited the workshop in January 2018, and it feels great to work with such an authentic and dedicated supplier.”

    As all products are handmade and due to temperature differences in the oven, all products are slightly different in size and colour, making each piece unique.

    The products are fired at a high temperature of 1.250 °C, making the clay compact and the product durable and strong. As a result, all products are perfectly dishwasher and microwave safe.

    In a day and world where almost everything is machine-made and mass-produced, we can stress how special it is that these ceramics are hand made in small batches at the Archive Studio’s Vietnamese workshop. The EU has recognised the cooperation with this small producer as a program supporting the local economy and has exempt Archive Studio from paying import duties.

  • Care Instruction
    • Dinnerware should not rub against each other in the dishwasher, so make sure there’s enough space between each item.
    • The dishwasher base should not have any broken shards of glass or other items that might vibrate and scratch the glaze.
    • Hard water damages fine crockery and thus should be softened before every dishwasher cycle.
    • To store your dinnerware, place micro-foam pads, paper napkins, or paper towels between each item in the stack. This is because the base rim is not glazed and may scratch the other plates or bowls.
    • Glazed dinnerware items should not be stored where there are rapid temperature changes, like near the window or above the stove. This causes the glaze to crack.
    • Cups should not be stacked as the rims might get damaged. Instead, hand them by their handles or arrange them linearly.
    • When placing dinnerware items in the sink, lay a dish towel or drying rack to avoid clinking and breakage.
