Our collections are designed in Vancouver and produced by family-operated businesses in Portugal. It's important to us that we can offer premium tableware with a modern design, sustainably sourced.
No. Our ceramics are free of lead, cadmium, and other heavy metals.
Yes! They've been created for everyday use and that includes the dishwasher. You can also put your plates in the microwave to heat up last night's pizza for breakfast or into the oven up to 480 degrees fahrenheit—these plates are durable.
Our ceramic matte ceramic glaze is susceptible to artificial markings from high-quality cutlery (fun fact - this is actually very small amounts of the stainless steel from the cutlery getting deposited on the plate). This residue can be easily removed with the help of Bar Keepers Friend or another (gentle) abrasive. Your plates will look brand-spanking-new in no time.
We offer a 100-day trial on any of our sets so if you're not in love with the color, let us know. We would be happy to take them back and send you another color. If you're really torn, send us an email or text—we'll find a creative way to get you a better idea of the color.
We believe everyone should find tableware that fits them best—and sometimes you can’t know what fits best until you try it out. For this reason, we offer a 100-day trial.
If at any point in the first 100 days you decide it’s not right for you, return it for a full refund—no questions asked.
Also, rest assured, returned plates won’t go to waste. All previously owned plates are reused for local charity events which we sponsor.

We ship to both Canada and the United States at this time. If you're located outside of these regions, then send us an email and we'd be happy to work on a solution together.

Upon order completion, we'll send you a tracking code for your package. You can use this to get an estimated arrival time from the carrier.
All of our packaging materials are recyclable. Read more about our environmental impact below.

At Fable, we want the world to be a better place. Through the artists we work with, our partners, and the platform we build, we aim to make a difference.
From design to creation, we ensure the working environment is exemplary, thoughtful and meets our standards of where we would want to work. We visit our teams in Portugal frequently to ensure the work environment is great and to see how we can make every Fable product better.
We also partner with local charities and sponsor events that aim to reduce hunger locally across the world. Follow our journey by signing up for our newsletter.
Before we created a single plate, we began working with MealShare. Our vision has always been to bring joy to every meal, and that includes meals for those less fortunate. We also partner with local charities and events, helping to host fundraisers for a variety of local efforts.
Our products are built to last and meant to be used every day. Starting with the production of our tableware, nothing goes to waste.
For our ceramics, all excess clay clippings, broken plates, and water are recycled. The clay clippings and broken plates are put back into production during the creation of ceramics. Additionally, the water is recycled multiples times and reused as local farming fertilizer.
We aim for our teams in Portugal to have zero waste.
Personalized ceramics make for a great gift or accent to your home. We use state of the art laser etching to engrave the exposed clay on the underside of your new ceramics. Most people choose between three and 15 characters to etch it, but our team is happy to help with more custom requests. Think family name, a special date, or classic initials. Send us a message if you have any questions!
Yes, of course! You can see an example on each of the ceramics product pages. You can also shoot us a message and we'd be happy to send you some examples.
The lettering is roughly one inch tall and one inch wide.
We offer lettering for $20 extra per set.
Unfortunately, at this time, we're not able to do provide personalization options for cutlery. But, let us know if you would like to see this in future. We're always looking for new ways to bring joy, and we love suggestions from our community.
We host and sponsor loads of local events. Sign up for our newsletter to hear where Fable will be next.
What a great gift—of course! We're happy to ship to any location where we currently offer shipping, and we don't include the price on the invoice. However, at this time, we don't offer gift wrapping.
Congratulations on your engagement! Yes, of course. Send us an email and we'll work on getting you all set up.
