In search of suppliers, Donna and Samuel Smith, the founders of Casafina, traveled to Italy and Portugal, both countries famous for their heritage in ceramic craftsmanship.
They visited local potters and factories and, as they watched skilled artisans finish and paint each piece by hand, they were inspired to create a unique assortment of authentic and charming pieces that have come to define the Casafina brand.
Since 1981, Casafina has offered a wide range of high-quality sustainable kitchenware, bakeware, tableware, and gift products, featuring collections that are trend-right today as well as classics that have stood the test of time. Now crafted exclusively in Portugal by true artisans, its fine stoneware products are unique, durable, and timeless.
Casafina stoneware is produced in a single-firing system heated up to 1180°C (2160°F), which creates a unique, fully vitrified ceramic body with a special bonding between the clay and the glazed surface.
This process and the original formula makes Casafina stoneware more durable and resistant to both thermal and mechanical shock.
The collections are made by the hands of skilled ceramic artisans, reflecting one of the oldest manufacturing traditions in Portugal. Each piece tells a story of labor and love, and is truly unique.
The stoneware collections are complemented with handmade glass, cork, oak, linens, and hand-painted collections of terracotta.
All items are designed to be part of the moments that matter...
Casafina views its products and operations as part of a long-life cycle and is committed to taking better care of the community and of the world.
The effort to go green and to minimize any impact on the environment is (always) a work in progress, project by project.
