About Creme Tableware
Crème is simple, refined and beautiful with an unmistakable air of quality. It combines a perfectly balanced ivory colouring with a range of innovative shapes and profiles to create the ideal blank canvas on which the chef can present his or her art. But like all great art Crème is also revolutionary. It defies the rules of convention by offering truly word-class standards of quality and product performance at remarkably affordable prices. Crème is designed with strength and durability at it's heart. We stand behind this strength by offering a Lifetime Edge Chip Warranty with all plates, bowls, oval dishes, saucers, cups and mugs.
Every piece of Creme is Microwave & Dishwasher Safe, with Thermal Shock & Cutlery-Marking Resistance, as well as being Lead & Cadium Free.
Manufactured in a new dedicated factory that utilises the very latest forming, finishing and firing technology. With an investment of $30m, we guarantee consistency and efficiency.
Using only the finest European clays, and a high content of Alumina, we have achieved not only a perfect colour but also world-class levels of performance for strength and durability.
This world-class facility has been awarded ISO9001 for quality management, ISO14001 for environmental management and SA8000 for corporate and social responsibility.
