Alba. Work Series Two table. Another Country x Smile Plastics


Made from

Yoghurt pots

Made from the humble kitchen cast-off, your yoghurt pot, Alba is our best-selling material and you can see why. Sophisticated, luxurious and highly versatile in appearance, this interior staple ‘goes with anything’ transcending time and trends.

With its white, marble-like surface and hints of gold and silver (from yoghurt pot foil), Alba isn’t just easy on the eye, it’s easy to use too.

Pattern Examples

We make up batches of Alba material in 5-10 tonne lots and batches will vary depending on the type of yoghurt pots we find. There will always be a base of white with inclusions of silver, however there may also be colour inclusions which can vary in ratio and tone between batches. Here are some examples of current and previous batches of Alba.
