there is a stylish sense of language to CEDIT – ceramiche d’italia; characteristics of unexpected invention, expressiveness without thematic boundaries, and constant experimental research combine to create the products we know and love today. it is their five core values that shape this language, from craftsmanship to technological innovation and sustainable commitments as shown with the voluntary shift to a benefit corporation status (march 2020) and achievement of the B corp certification (december 2020).
