What Is Vietri?

Vietri dinnerware is made with painstaking care using methods perfected over generations. Each piece is handcrafted, making each piece a unique work of art. Each Vietri collection carries with it the tradition and heritage of the regions where these exquisitely-crafted dinnerware originate.

Vietri is a company that promotes Italian artisans. Their collection started with dinnerware from artisans on the Amalfi Coast. Today, their collections are comprised of handcrafted pieces that go beyond dinnerware and approach art from artisans from many parts of Italy. Founded by Lee Gravely and her daughters, Frances and Susan, Vietri was inspired by their visit to Italy in 1983 when they visited artisan factories in the area. The Gravelys started Vietri with the first few pieces to share the unique craftsmanship of the Amalfi Coast. Today, the "Truly Italian" collection has reached all corners of the world through its brand.

Vietri: What’s in a Name? 

Vietri Truly Italian

Vietri was taken from the name of the town that is home to the artisan factories that the Gravelys visited on that first trip. Vietri Sul Mare is a town on the Amalfi coast where this exceptional dinnerware was made using methods that have been perfected for generations. Vietri is also a play on the Italian words “tre vite,” or "three lives." It also reflects the three women whose lives were forever changed by that trip to the Amalfi Coast.

Introducing Exceptional Vietri Dishes for a Unique Dining Experience

The inspiration that led to the founding of the Vietri brand was the colorful, handcrafted dinnerware the Gravelys found during their stay at the San Pietro Hotel in Positano. The array of pieces taken home from their visit was composed of nature-inspired pieces made by the artisans they met at a nearby factory in the town bearing the brand’s name, Vietri sul Mare. The collection that started it all, and what would become the brand’s flagship collection, is the Campagna.
