At a glance, there’s over 293 million posts on Instagram tagged #food. As with most things posted to the app, they’re beautiful, and one thing that makes a food shot stand out is beautiful tableware.

Whether you’re styling food photos purely for Instagram or simply looking for a cutlery set to make everyday dining that little bit more special, Burmese design brand Kalinko will be your new obsession. 

The London-led company works alongside artisans in Burma to create unique cutlery sets, glasses and crockery (among other items), and their products are made slowly, by hand, and are designed to last.

Best of all? They offer shipping to the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Here’s our top picks from their ‘Kitchen and Dining’ section:

Mother of Pearl and Jade MINSHIN Spoons

£38 for set of 4

Use them for jam, eggs, sugar, mustard – or just admire them safe in the knowledge you have the chicest cutlery in town.

KINMI rattan wine holder


This handwoven rattan basket will hold any 75cl bottle, but we think it looks best with 6 bottles of wine in it...

MINSHIN Napkin Rings 

£24 for set of 4

These are just heaven. Little mother-of-pearl jewels. And an excuse to use napkins like a grown-up.

Mother of Pearl and Jade MINSHIN butter knives

£38 for set of 4

Do we need these? No. But do we want them? 1000% yes. They're made of mother of pearl and jade, and are all slightly different - they’ll send you a mixed group of four.
