Authenticity: Each piece is hand-finished and, thus, different from all the others. Therefore, any irregularity or colour variation in our tableware is due to the craftsmanship involved in its production process.
Using a traditional manual technical application of rubber, this traditional lettuce leaf was especially designed to serve snails, or other small snacks, and alludes to the city of Lisbon.
Origin of the Term “Alfacinha”
“Alfacinha”, meaning little lettuce, is a word long used to describe the inhabitants of Lisbon. It is said that this term dates back to the 19th century, a time when the residents of Lisbon started wearing elaborate collars, resembling little lettuces.
Incredibly similar to a real lettuce leaf, The Lettuce and The Snail is a piece that intends to bring a bit of nature into your home.
