Written by Olivetta
In the heart of Puglia, in a town famous for its olives and its millenary culture, an extraordinary gastronomic experience is born
Olivetta, much more than a simple wedding favour, represents a culinary celebration of Puglia that skilfully blends tradition, taste, and ethics or reuse within three extraordinary collections.
Before immersing in these exceptional gastronomic works of art, we need to understand what makes Olivetta a unique gem of our region. In an era in which plastic and synthetic materials dominate the scene, Olivetta revives the art of the Apulian terracotta, once fundamental for preserving oil, wine, water, and all sorts of foods. Then this project took an ancient everyday object and transformed it into a wedding gift that contains the essence of Apulian art and culture.
Olivetta: besides a simple wedding favour
The gastronomic wedding favours are increasingly popular and Olivetta is at the forefront of this renaissance. These gifts do not only represent wedding memories, but rather they express the style, personality, and identity of the spouses. Olivetta responds to all these needs with grace and refinement.
Each Olivetta is shaped with love and dedication by master ceramists, making it an authentic work of art. These small pieces of Puglia contain the green gold of the region: the extra virgin olive oil, a symbol of richness and food well-being. This artistic and culinary marvel is available in five fascinating collections, each with a unique story and design.
The Olivetta collections: five ideas for a gastronomic wedding favour for your guests
Olivetta has created five original and unique collections: Classic, Elisir, Serena, De Lux e Boho Chic.
But what makes them so special and appreciated by our spouses? Discover the details of each collection and choose the one that best represents your wedding!
The collection represents Apulia in its purest form. The terracotta jars and extra virgin olive oil are presented in a traditional way. Each piece is a tribute to Apulian peasant art, available in three sizes and thirteen pastel colours. The flagship of this collection is the “Nature" jar, which recalls the shades of olives during their ripening cycle.
It is the ideal wedding favour for those who are organising a simple wedding inspired by Apulian tradition or, simply, nature.
If, however, you are looking for something more daring, the Elisir collection is perfect for your happy event. These jars, available in both 100 ml and 250 ml formats, contain oil flavoured with Mediterranean herbs and scents such as chilli pepper, lemon, basil and orange. Each bottle is a unique fragrance, presented in a jar decorated with the colour that represents its contents.
De Lux collection
This collection celebrates the tradition of Apulian lights, a manifestation of light and colour originally used for religious celebrations. De Lux terracotta jars are decorated with the geometries of eight-pointed rosettes, which are peculiar to Apulian lights, and which capture their beauty. These gastronomic wedding favours are available in six bright variations of colours, each containing Coratina cultivar extra virgin olive oil.
A gastronomic jar that is suitable for a cheerful wedding, which never loses sight of its elegance and chic character.
The Serena collection draws inspiration from the Apulian art of embroidery, an artisanal tradition that requires dedication and passion. The jars in this collection, available in 250 ml format, have a design that remembers the embroidery, available in the sage green variant. This collection embodies the aesthetic and culinary taste of the Apulian territories.
Perfect for those who want to recreate an event with retro and vintage tones paying homage to the artisan traditions of a region that defends its identity by adapting to new trends.
Boho Chic collection
This collection is perfect for couples who want an unconventional style. With six fascinating colours, this Olivetta is a piece of art that does not lose sight of the authenticity of Puglia and renews it by mixing it with the spirit of Boho Chic design. The hand-painted Apulian ceramics and extra virgin olive oil make this collection truly special.
Olivetta is a journey through Puglia, an ode to tradition and an expression of love for the land. These gastronomic wedding favours tell an authentic story, an indelible memory of your special day and, also, a message of respect for nature and tradition. Your guests will not only appreciate your thought but will also be able to taste the authentic goodness of Apulian extra virgin olive oil.
