Stainless steel

A strong, functional and durable material just over 100 years old.

Stainless steel is a material that is just over a hundred years old. It was in 1913 when the British metallurgist Harry Brearley achieved a chromium alloy with carbon steel that did not lose its shine and did not rust, remaining the same.

A century earlier, experiments had already been carried out with different alloys, with the aim of achieving a rust-resistant material.

The first patented stainless steel cutlery was marketed in the United States in 1921, where the Silver Company, a manufacturer of silver cutlery, worked in parallel to improve on Brearley's discovery, applying this material to cutlery for the first time. This was a revolution in homes and shops due to the shiny and easy to clean cutlery.

Until the beginning of the 20th century, all metal cutlery rusted. It was a very heavy task for the people who were in charge of keeping them clean and shiny, to the point of warning about it at the time of their hiring; even stating in their letter of introduction "doing no cutlery".

Brick Lane cutlery, designed and manufactured in Italy, is inspired by antique cutlery; both the design and the variety that composes it. All its pieces are made of stainless steel with a stonewashed treatment that gives them an irregular matt finish in different colours.
The PVD technology used to achieve the weathered finish of the cutlery is carried out by washing with porcelain stones to give it this special texture.


Brick Lane cutlery is dishwasher guaranteed safe up to temperatures of 60º, we recommend not to use alkaline detergents containing alcohol or perfumes. Do not mix steel cutlery and silverware in the same wash cycle.
If any water stains remain after drying, simply remove them with a damp cloth.

If washing by hand, avoid leaving them in contact with food for too long, do not use powder detergent and use a soft scouring pad.
