Designed in Berlin. Made in Portugal. 🇵🇹
We took traditional artisanal craftsmanship and gave it a modern twist.
With a clean minimalist design, our pieces are perfectly stackable and our versatile color palette can be easily mixed and matched.
Each piece is produced from the finest materials to ensure they withstand the test of time.
And manufactured sustainably and ethically by local artisans. 🌿
Ceramic making in Portugal started nearly 500 years ago and has been perfected over the centuries.
We've refined these traditional processes to create a more efficient and sustainable way of production.
Far & Away was created as an answer to the issues caused by the current trend of globalization and mass production, where the environment has been sacrificed for profits.
We decided to partner with The Trillion Tree Campaign and contribute a portion of our sales to fund reforestation projects around the world, with the aim of reaching 1 trillion trees planted collectively by 2050.
Additionally, we've optimized our production processes and supply chain to operate in an environmentally sustainable way, reducing our carbon footprint.
Excess water used in the production process is filtered and repurposed for local farming and agriculture. 🚜
Excess clay trimmings created in the shaping process are also recycled and reused. ♻️
Our packaging is designed to withstand the bumpiest of rides en-route to your home, all while being 100% recyclable. 📦
We've partnered with the family-owned factory in a small town in Northern Portugal. They have over half a century's experience in crafting the finest ceramics.
They offer safe working conditions and fair wages for their employees. Workers enjoy a good work-life balance. After all, happy makers = happy users. 😊
Our colors are inspired by the architecture of Portugal. It's hard to miss the colorful pastel walls while wandering through the charming streets of Porto and Lisbon.
Our vision is to bridge the gap between the makers and users, rebuilding the connection people have with the products they use.
In a world of fast production at massive scales, Jacky and Albert found themselves struggling to find high-quality products at affordable prices. As avid travellers, a recent visit to a ceramics artisan in Portugal sparked something within them. Why must they travel across the globe to find high-quality goods that they cherished and enjoyed using?
They created Far & Away with the goal of bringing quality artisanal goods from every corner of the world, right to your doorstep.

Risks and challenges
Due to the weight and fragility of stoneware ceramics products, shipping the products in a timely, cost-efficient, and secure manner will prove to be our biggest challenge.
We've spent countless hours researching fulfillment partners in various countries to ensure that we are able to offer our backers the best experience, without needing to charge exorbitant shipping fees. We've also developed a 100% recyclable box that passes all the standardized drop tests, so our precious ceramics will be protected against any rogue delivery drivers having a bad day.
In the off chance that our products arrive damaged, we will send over replacements free of charge.
Our strong relationship with our manufacturer should ensure that the production process goes smoothly.
With that being said, we cannot control everything, in any case of delays we promise to communicate with transparency and work around the clock to ensure your expectations are met!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
