Costa Nova is a brand of fine stoneware crockery. Table, coffee, tea, roasters, salad bowls, terrines and tins are some of the products developed and produced by the brand. The inspiration gives the name to the different collections. The brand combines the design and colours that characterise the quality, elegance and contemporary style. As a result, Costa Nova has become a benchmark in fine stoneware serving table and accessories.

Costa Nova, the origin

The history of the brand begins in 1998 in Vagos, district of Aveiro, Portugal with the engineers Miguel Casal and Rui Batel.

Initially, Gestrel was founded, with the purpose of manufacturing tableware and accessories to serve in fine stoneware. Subsequently, in 2006, the company launched its own brand: Costa Nova. The brand thus reflects the essence of the small fishing village that gave it its name, the village with striped wooden houses on Costa Nova beach. Therefore, Costa Nova embraces the Mediterranean style in its fullness.

Fine stoneware crockery design

The success of Costa Nova is due to its design, quality and durability of the pieces. Therefore, the specialty of the brand is revealed through stoneware, a more resistant material than the classic faience and porcelain. Stoneware is a slightly porous material that withstands liquids and heat. The stoneware also has the power of applying different colours and moulds. On the other hand, and unlike traditional stoneware, fine stoneware has a more refined look.

Production process

The fine stoneware is formed from the fine grain clay and allows it to have various colours. The stoneware is still resistant to high temperatures, being able to go to the microwave and washing machine. Another interesting fact is the manual aspect of the finishes, which is intentional.

In the production process, each piece moves about 4 kilometers in walkways. First, the stoneware enters the moulding machine, then goes through the finishes and exits the oven. As soon as these arrive in the hands of the workers, the reliefs of the plates and the wings of the cups are moulded.

International presence

Costa Nova operates mainly in a high range of selected stores, charming hotels and good restaurants. It is present in more than 50 countries, with pieces featured in the most prestigious decoration stores.
