The Our Place Essential Collection – Main Plates

Last month I shared the tumblers from the The Our Place Essentials Collection. This month I wanted to talk to you about their beautiful plates! The collection is a line of beautiful dinnerware that is not only gorgeous, but also fully functional. I’ve partnered with Our Place to show you what they have to offer, as well as tell you about what an extraordinary company they truly are.


I love Our Place because they are a company of people who care. One of the co-founders, Shiza Shahid, co-founded The Malala Fund and now works to celebrate and highlight the multi-cultural cuisine that Americans embrace. We are a land of immigrants, and Our Place recognizes that and focuses on how our cultural landscape weaves and intertwines. Our food is one of the major ways that we embrace other cultures and honor them. Our Place knows that, and seeks to bring us even closer.

In addition to their insight, they focus on ethical labor, using responsible materials, and the real stories that make people across America so incredible. Based in Los Angeles, California, Our Place has partnered with the Los Angeles Food Policy Council and is currently working to help people gain access to good food. Not only that, they are environmentally conscious in their packaging. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradeable and recyclable corrugate, without any bubble wrap or plastic product involved.


Now let’s talk plates! Our Place’s Main Plates are beautiful, ceramic, hand-painted plates. One thing I love about these plates is how lovely they look when they are stacked (see the picture I took on the right below). They will look so beautiful in glass cabinets or open shelving!

Our Place sent me their Main Plates in Spice, but they also come in two other colors – Char and Steam. So you can match them to your decor, or mix and match them for fun! They are also both microwave and dishwasher safe. This is a major perk for me, as our dishwasher uses far less water washing our dishes than washing them by hand does. I am always happier to find dishwasher-safe tableware for this reason. Here are a couple of pictures I took of my plates!


I encourage you to check out Our Place’s website. See what other items they offer, but also read about them, the good they are doing in the world, and the incredible stories they have to share. Our Place also regularly partners with various charities, so check out their site and see who they are working with now!
