Sunny Day

The "Sunny Day" collection is all about vibrant colours, creativity and mixing and matching. We suggest trying out the bold combination of Fuchsia, New Red and Greige decors for a truly expressive look. Each shade has its own unique character, but when combined, they create a warm and harmonious atmosphere at the table.

The Thomas Brand Essence

Fun with cooking, food, drink and giving is the Thomas motto. Therefore, the range offers a wide choice of original products, thought of “outside the box” and with a twinkle in the eye.

Thomas is the brand for design-oriented and uncomplicated crockery for everyday use. The products are deliberately functional, plain and versatile. With its differently oriented product ranges Thomas covers a wide range, with a solution at hand for every taste and customer requirement.

Classics such as “Trend” that have lasted decades, demonstrate the soundness of the brand and prove the high quality standards of the products. In order to fully respond to the needs of its customers, Thomas trend-consciously incorporates new themes and materials into the range, in this way developing into a brand that combines functionality with lifestyle.

The Thomas clientele is notably heterogeneous: it appeals just as much to the young profession as to the elder lady, who when adding to her coffee set, buys additional Thomas products for her children and grandchildren.
