It’s all about feelings! Teresa Lundahl

About us

Mateus was founded 1993 by Teresa Lundahl that, just as her business, has one foot in two different cultures. Brought up in Portugal but living in Sweden she noticed how colors, patterns and new ideas were becoming more and more common in Swedish homes. Due to the fact that she was brought in Portugal it was only natural for her to combine genuine Portuguese craftsmanship with Teresa’s knowledge of design and fashion. She wanted to turn ceramic workmanship into art for the table that is continuously evolving.

Mateus is distributed all over the world and growing each year. Today Teresa’s daughter, Filippa, is working with the company and has during her two years introduced The Bubbles Collection and Mateus Urban Garden Collection.

Today mother and daughter are working together to create new exciting collections!

As a natural part of hand made ceramics and the core values of Mateus – all products are tested and in conformity with the requirements of FDA – U.S Food and Drug Administration.

About ceramics

Ceramic products are fired at less than 1000 degrees. They are treated to make them water repellent, but since ceramics are made from a porous material we cannot guarantee that every item has this property. We therefore recommend our customers not to place cups and mugs on moisture-sensitive surfaces.
Stoneware products are fired at 1200. Water absorption of stoneware products is less than 1 percent.
All our products are dishwasher safe. Stone ware is also oven and micro wave proof.
All products meet the international standards for lead and cadmium content.

Ceramics
we are.
