They have nice sets for reasonable prices, too reasonable perhaps. They say they import on their website. I'm not knowledgeable of these things, but I suppose it must be because of the backlash from stoneware made in China?

Dansk apparently makes lead-free products, while many others cannot say this, and yet they are made in Thailand. Being a consumer is hard work these days.
