NOT ALL STONEWARE IS CREATED EQUALLY
Not all stoneware is created equally. In fact there is no universal standard definition of stoneware and the term is frequently misused to describe other ceramic products. All our products are made in a single firing system heated up to 1180ºC (2160ºF). This original formula of high-fired stoneware creates a glazed surface wich is very resistant to both thermal and mechanical shocks, chip resistance and everyday use.
Costa Nova stoneware is manufacture in a modern production site close to the Costa Nova Village. The factory is set amongst pine tree groves. In keeping with the natural beauty of the area, and because of our serious commitment to the environment, the factory is “state of the art” environmentally safe. All the best procedures for waste processing and recycling are used, and the employees work in a clean and safe environment. Our stoneware products are eco-friendly, reusable, and recyclable. Single firing technology saves energy and reduces emissions into the atmosphere.
