Albe is an apart homeware collection that consists of kitchen containers, inspired by the eatable mushrooms found on Romanian ground. Picking mushrooms after summer rainy days is an old habit in rural areas close to forests. These mushrooms have particular names, according to the areas where they grow. Sometimes their names are so amusing that we decided to keep them and try to express them in English. The only sure way to know which species of mushrooms we were talking about is to use their scientific Latin name. In this manner, anyone can identify a species and correlate it with its geographical area and naming.
How Its Made
Albe containers can accomodate contents with various textures and densities and keep it fresh and safe for a long time. Supported by a beech tray, the ceramic jars have cork made caps, to seal out air and moisture. Albe are highly versatile and functional and add a wonderful aesthetic touch to any kitchen countertops.
