Our Coloured Flatware
All of our coloured cutlery is safe and 100% metal – just like our classic silver sets! We use a special colouring process that is non-toxic, and will not peel or chip over time, like other coloured products on the market.
Our entire line of flatware is made from high-grade stainless steel, but our coloured items undergo an extra step in the manufacturing process which allows the colour to occur naturally in the metal. The process, called physical vapour deposition (PVD) involves a layer of titanium molecules blended into the surface of the stainless steel, resulting in a shiny and colourful finish.
Titanium, like stainless steel, is inert and safe. In addition to the colourful and shiny finish, the PVD process also enhances the surface hardness and helps prevent corrosion. The result is flatware that is strong, durable, functional, food-safe, tasteless, hypoallergenic, and fun! The finish will not peel or rub off, and if cared for properly, the colours should not fade. (Please read about caring for your products here.)
In addition, our coloured flatware will not bend or rust, is heat-resistant, oxidation-resistant, and dishwasher safe.
Importantly, the PVD process is eco-friendly and it does not produce toxic run-off into the ecosystem (unlike many other colouring processes).
