Porcelain in natural colours together with soft pastel shades
Handmade porcelain, high quality and exclusive, lovingly handcrafted for you.
When East meets West...
My guests fall in love at first sight with this beautiful tableware with its organic shape and natural colours. It is extremely light yet very strong and even dishwasher and oven safe, says Tina, founder of Tinkalu.
Light as a feather and very strong, the porcelain is lovingly and traditionally handmade in a family business in Vietnam. Porcelain has been made there for 700 years and exported all over the world.
What makes Tinkalu tableware so special?
It is the intricate craftsmanship that makes Tinkalu tableware so unique compared to mass-produced goods. Each piece is lovingly crafted by hand, as the organic shape makes it impossible to use machines. The glazed interior contrasts with the matte exterior. The striking shape and soft colours create a trendy, casual look. Despite the light and thin quality, the tableware is very durable and dishwasher and oven safe.
How do I put together the ideal set of tableware?
We have already put together some sets for you, such as the breakfast set or the dinner set. You can always mix and match all the pieces in our collection. Different sizes and colours of plates, cups and bowls can be decorated and used over and over again. Place a tea light in the espresso cup and use the large serving plate as a gratin dish or as a design object on the console in the dining room, just as you like.
Can the Tinkalu tableware be washed in the dishwasher?
A definite YES! Of course the tableware is dishwasher safe and suitable for everyday use. The porcelain is fully coloured and fired at a very high temperature.
Can the dishes be used in the oven?
Unbelievable but true, our china can be used for baking and cooking. We bake cupcakes and muffins directly in the cups and mugs, and use the large platter for lasagne, casseroles or vegetables au gratin. The large serving platter also looks cool for aperitifs, with different cups and bowls for dips and vegetable sticks as a dip set.
Is porcelain the best tableware material?
Porcelain tableware is very popular. It is a precious material that can withstand everyday wear and tear and is dishwasher safe. Porcelain is suitable for microwave and oven use. Tinkalu tableware is perfect for everyday use and we want it to shine not only on special occasions, but on the table every day.
How do you set the table in style?
Beautiful tableware is simply part of a stylish table setting: After all, your wonderful meal should be served on an equally wonderful plate. At Tinkalu you can choose from a wide range of different sizes of plates, cups and bowls.
What tableware sets are available?
From our breakfast set (consisting of a breakfast plate, a large coffee/tea cup, a saucer and a yoghurt bowl) to the dinner set (consisting of a dinner plate and a soup/salad/dessert bowl) to the complete dinner service, which accompanies you from breakfast to dinner, there is certainly the right dishes set for you.
A complete dinner service consists of a dinner and dessert plate, a cereal/soup bowl, a yoghurt/dessert bowl, a large coffee cup and a saucer. The cereal bowls double as soup and salad bowls and the saucer is the perfect bread plate. The large cup is great for desserts or dips. There are no limits to your imagination.
Our Tinkalu dinnerware is made of porcelain and has a beautiful organic design. It is available in 6 gorgeous colours that can be easily combined: The 3 natural colours beige, grey, charcoal and the 3 fashionable pastel colours mint, rose and ice blue.
At Tinkalu you will also find the matching serving plates and bowls: bowls in many sizes, platters for serving and the place plate is also perfect as a cake plate. Combine the dinner and coffee service as you like - all colours harmonise beautifully and you can show your individuality and good taste. Or choose a complete set in the same colour. That way, you can create a harmonious, colour-coordinated look on your table.
Coffee cups, tea cups, coffee mugs, tea mugs, small espresso cups and espresso macchiato cups are used in the morning and throughout the day for a quick energy boost.
For a multi-course meal, soup bowls, soup plates, dinner plates and dessert plates are essential. We also have pasta plates for your pasta dishes and stews.
Bowls and small bowls
Ideal as a cereal bowl, salad bowl, soup bowl, fruit bowl or dessert bowl.
How much tableware do you need?
You can create a personalised service with different pieces or buy a complete set. In most cases we are talking about tableware for 6 to 12 people. Because our china has a matching design, the table setting looks particularly harmonious. Choose special sets such as coffee/tea sets for afternoon tea and breakfast, or dinner sets for any occasion. Plates and bowls for serving and table accessories can be combined individually.
The Tinkalu tableware is also perfect if you want to spice up a plain white service or if you want to combine it with patterned tableware to get a more subtle look..
Everything for your breakfast table
A beautifully laid breakfast table needs many things: plates, cups, egg cups, bowls for yoghurt or muesli, pitchers for water, juice and tea, and pretty spoons for jam and honey. Everyone can serve themselves from a small milk jug. For tea drinkers, there is a large jug with boiling water to make tea, just like in a teapot.
What interior style does the crockery go with?
The organic shape adapts effortlessly to any style and you can make a statement with your choice of colour. Design lovers prefer our charcoal tableware, which goes well with white and black interiors. Colourful crockery will put you in a good mood for breakfast. Pastel-coloured cups, plates and bowls not only look good on the breakfast table, they also make a great coffee set for tea with friends. If you have an Asian theme in your home, the small bowls and plates will look great with chopsticks. For summer evenings in the garden, choose pastels for a summery look.
Don't be afraid to mix colours. For a modern table decoration, we recommend a mix of all six colours available. This looks fresh and unusual. It is not too colourful because of the softer tones. If you have a display cabinet, you can use it to store and display your crockery. Also, you can see everything at a glance, so you will use the dishes more often.
What accessories go with Tinkalu tableware?
Napkins and matching placemats emphasise the style of your interior. The pure linen napkins effortlessly bring natural elegance to your table and the thick cotton placemats complete the stylish look. You will also find lanterns with wonderful effects, elegant trays and unusual cushions.
