Food evokes memories and nostalgia, it is the most direct way to communicate with those around us.

In November Skye firstly try herself in the release of a tableware collection, named Tavola or Table in Italian. It`s the universal line and the price ranges from $32 to $165.
The majority of the author`s childhood memories remained at the table. "When I was growing up, our dining table was the center of our lives," remembers the woman. "My parents adhered to the open kitchen policy, so friends, relatives always came to us for lunch or for dinner. It contributed to my current attitude towards food and the way it brings people sitting next to each other. My mother always shows by her example how much is it important to set the table beautifully. And of course, it affected me!" The main theme in Tavola`s collection- the beauty in the details. Even the smallest honey pots make a huge sense. McAlpine already works hard at planning a second-line launch next year!
