About the Brands offered by The DRH Collection
The DRH Collection is proud to distribute some of the finest brands of china & glassware throughout the UK & Europe.
The designers & manufactures we source from & work with are all across the globe from Hong Kong to Germany, & from Paris to California.
Below is a short introduction about each of our suppliers, telling you a little about the brand & what makes them quite so special & different!
BIA based in California, supply us with a fantastic assortment of white oven to table accessory pieces such as Ramekins, Pie Dishes, Salt Pigs & much, much more, all of which are suitable for both the catering & retail markets. BIA's great array of colourful bakeware such as SCOOP! & Wavy are available in a wide selection of colours & so are great for mix & match. BIA also has a large collection of popular gift sets & Counter Display Units (CDUs).
All of the items from BIA are made with high quality porcelain & stoneware.
Artland are on the eastern side of the States in New Jersey & have the most amazing ranges, designs & access to mouth blown glass. The vast majority of Artland's glassware is coloured; this is an increasingly rare commodity as both the craftsmen & factories who can work well with coloured glass are becoming few & far between.
Artland's designs vary hugely from range to range, both in shape & colour of the glasses, from heavy based bubble glasses to elegant & slender, & unique designs & shapes to fun gift boxed sets! Artland also supply us with Simplicity, a range of hugely practical gift boxed, clear glass serving pieces.
Laurie Gates too is based out in California & it is from here where he gets his inspiration. His look is phenomenally unique as all of his floral designs are hand-painted which gives every piece an amazing flurry of hues from each brush stroke. Most of Laurie Gates ranges are incredibly bright & vibrant, but can also be broken up with the block colours in the Dekko range, & between them they tell a fantastic story!
Rosanna is based in Seattle, but spent many years in Europe studying & subsequently fell in love with all things quintessentially European. This passion is clear in so many of her fantastically designed gift boxed ranges, be it a British themed design, Italian or French!!
The vast majority of the items from Rosanna are gift boxed, & it is clear to see that just as much time goes in to each highly detailed gift box as the actually items contained within!!
Lubiana is located in Poland & is one of the largest factories in Europe, producing hundreds of millions of tonnes of porcelain every year! Lubiana specialises in porcelain for the catering industry, however due to an amazingly expansive range many of their shapes are far from out of place in the home.
As well as a multitude of shapes offered, ranging from fine & light to catering weight, & square to triangular, Lubiana also are incredibly astute at bespoke surface designs.
Deshoulieres & Apilco are both based in France with several factories up & down the country. Dating back to 1826 they have a fantastic heritage behind them, & represent the very top tier of the brands we distribute.
Deshoulieres's business can be split in to two main areas, the first being white tableware with a large number of shapes available, including the classic Richelieu shape as well as some more design led shapes such as Haussmann. The second is their amazingly diverse & broad decorated designs, many of which contain precious metals. Deshoulieres stunning designs & application sets them apart from many others on the market.
Deshoulieres is produced in Limoges & so they also have the very exclusive back stamp of 'Porcelaine de Limoges', which is regarded to be the finest porcelain in the world.
Apilco have a brilliant range of classic French shapes & designs including the most recognisable of them all, Green & Gold Bistroware. To see the rest of their ranges have a look at their online catalogue.
Stölzle design & manufacture their glasses in Germany. They specialise primarily in machine made clear glass stemware & tumblers. Stölzle have a brilliant range of shapes such as wine glasses, martini glasses, flute champagnes & tumblers, in both modern and classical shapes.
Stölzle's level of quality is formidable, & twinned with the fantastic clarity & weight of their glasses it makes for some of the finest machine made glasses available.
