We are thrilled to announce the winners of the fifth annual Tableware International Awards of Excellence 2022.
This yearâ€™s incredible award winners have produced some outstanding collections. Thanks, as always, to our panel of international judges and to each and every company who entered the 2022 awards â€“ this year we received more than 220 entries over our 15 categories.
â€œIt is an absolute privilege to host these awards for the global tableware industry,â€ says Tableware Internationalâ€™s editor Mairead Wilmot. â€œWe were overwhelmed with entries from a fantastic selection of top-tier companies. After a trying, pandemic-filled few years, it is reassuring to see the incredible skill, innovation and quality of beautiful collections being produced. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to enter, all of our judges, everyone who made the finalists list in each category and most of all, to our winners.â€
Tableware Internationalâ€™s publisher Paul Yeomans adds: â€œItâ€™s fantastic to see the continued support for our Awards of Excellence, I understand how difficult the past number of years has been for the industry but having now visited numerous trade shows over the past few weeks, I can hand-on-heart say the industry is returning to its former self and it is great to see. Oh, and we will have a party next year to celebrate!â€
