French Bull's debut in January 2002 marked the return of melamine but with a modern spin. The classic material known for it's durability and striking colour was given a makeover boasting the bold pop culture signature style of designer Jackie Shapiro.
After graduating from Parson's School of Design majoring in fashion, Jackie landed in Italy, working for Milan's innovative fashion house, Fiorucci. It was here where she bagan breathing life into familiar images with her graphic style grounded in colour and steeped in imagination. A return to New York sparked a freelance career that led to the creation of her own Children's fashion collection, and then the desire to create homeware products for design conscious consumers at accessible prices. French Bull is a lifestyle brand whose boundaries have become as limitless as the spectrum of colour it works from. Melamine itself is resistant to high heat, shatterproof, and an ideal ground for pattern. The durability and functionality of the material is prefect for indoor or outdoor entertaining and dishwasher safe. Available in three sizes: large round platter 40cm diameter, dinner plate 28cm diameter and side plate 20cm diameter and in two stunning designs: "Raj" and "Splendida". Additional pieces such as the Rectangular platter 35cm x 20cm and Salad servers 33cm x 7.cm, compliment the range beautifully.
