Named after an island off the coast of Venice, the Arte Italica Burano Collection is inspired by the embroidered lace created there. The design is gorgeous in lovely, navy blue and warm white. Each piece is handmade in Italy, and the uneven edges of the dishes combined with the airy design give them a wonderful, vintage feel. The ceramic dinnerware and serveware is created using the same techniques of artisans from generations past, and celebrates the art, history, and culture of Italy. This collection is dishwasher safe on the low-heat, air-dry cycle, using only non-abrasive detergents. The pieces are microwave safe as well.
