Delft Blue is "hot". The popularity of "Delfts Blue" has increased in recent years. The factory, "The Royal Delft Experience", annex museum saw profits rise, because more people are finding the way to the museum. Also in other museums is "Delfts Blue" to admire, for example, in the Town of Den Hague, where a permanent exhibition is and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. The popularity of "Delfts Blue" is also due to cooking stations on TV where utensil are displayed. (source: Limburger, August 30, 2014) Another reason for the growing popularity is due to Dutch designers like Marcel Wanders and Hella Jongerius. They were inspired by "Delfts Blue. In their work you see the tipical flora pattern in blue offen mixed with other materials. If you pay attention you"ll see more and more objects in our surrounding. Lately I was walking an Art route and I saw a life-size statue of Jesus painted with religious motives, of course in blue. The artist was definitly inspired by "Delfts Blue". We also have a nice collection of "Delfts Blue" in our shop.
