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 a 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.
