About

Painting the famous ‘straw pattern’ is a fascinating craft and is done the same way now as it was 100 years ago.

The result is beautiful tableware and objects decorated with the famous ‘straw pattern’ – the signature product of Porsgrund Porcelain Factory. Much loved and admired by porcelain lovers, every piece is made by hand.

The untrained eye will not see subtle differences in the decoration, but each product is signed by the craftsman who painted it. The finished products ooze exclusivity and quality.
