Our Place is honouring the beloved ritual of family brunch this October with a special new Traditionware Collection dedicated to the queer community.
The new campaign of Our Place launched the day after Pride season to celebrate the queer community all year-round and honour LGBTQ2S History Month.
To celebrate, 20% of proceeds from the collection will go towards Toronto’s, the 519’s Food Security Program to help alleviate food insecurity among LGBTQ2S communities, families, and neighbours.
The “full of pride mugs” were designed by Queer Japanese-Mexican ceramic artist Viviana Matsuda. The limited-edition Full of Pride Mugs are hand-painted with the colours of Queer joy, solidarity, and protest. They’re perfect for generous pours of your favourite morning drink and come in a set of two so you can share a cup with a loved one.
Viviana Matsuda’s pottery is known to be uneven, smooth, freckled, chubby, and beautiful in all its diversity and uniqueness. “My pottery is uneven, smooth, freckled, chubby, and beautiful in all its diversity and uniqueness. I designed these mugs to celebrate that feeling of being together around the brunch table with chosen family, and I painted them with stripes that honour our community’s many unique identities and intersections”, says Viviana.
The collection also includes beautiful “brunch banter cards”. These were created with the intent of sparking fun and meaningful conversations with your loved ones.
Our Place believes pride is all year-round. After over a year apart, they’ve created this collection to honour Queer gathering and reunion over brunch with chosen family.
