About Mateus

Mateus's ceramic ware is about emotion – about design that warms a home and enlivens the dining table. Thought and thoughtfulness united in a visual and tactile experience. A sensual thrill of the senses. Mateus's ceramic ware is a fusion of modern Swedish design and classic Portuguese handicraft. Directly inspired by the every-changing world of fashion, its colours, shapes and patterns are always as fresh as they are scintillating.

All our products are manufactured and painted by hand by experienced craftspeople in Portugal, and as no two items are identical, each has its own vibrant uniqueness. There are even those who claim you can tell if it's a man or a woman who has painted a plate by how heavily the brush has been applied.
