Merritt prides itself on being a leader in the plastic tableware industry. It was one of the first to push the evolution of melamine from inexpensive, light-weight plastic plates to high-end, heavy-weight tableware that is both unbreakable and elegant. They achieved this using innovative textures, intricate embossing, boutique shapes, and special glazes. The company stands apart from others with our proprietary technique of making plastic look and feel like something it's not: ceramic, pottery, stone, or wood. It is BPA Free and Dishwasher Safe.
