A London-based Maltese artist wants to make her fabulous designs more accessible on the island that inspires her work… and she’s doing it with kitchen utensils

Bonnymia – who you may remember as the brains behind those gorgeously glazed olive wood boards and utensils – has teamed up with Oil & More, a local artisan delicatessen, for her latest project.

The newly-appointed partners have been in contact for a while now, presumably because the artist has been stocking up on Oil & More’s products every time she visits Malta.

In a surprise collaboration, the two bodies are working together to ensure that anyone living in Malta can make use of both of their fantastic products.

The collection is limited, so be sure to grab yours before they run out of these beautifully patterned boards, emblazoned with traditional Maltese tiling.

The tiles shown above are actually taken from the owners of Oil & More’s own home kitchen, which gives this passion project a personal touch from both of the contributor’s sides.

Bonnymia has already been using the tile patterns from her own nanna‘s home on her previous designs, but this collaboration brings together two awesome concepts in the best of ways.

“We used to call her Nanna Bugia because she was from Birżebbuġa,” she explains on the Instagram post. Her designs also incorporate other aspects of the Maltese islands, but these serving boards have captured not only ours, but the hearts of many – both in Malta and all around the globe.

Oil & More have been putting Bonnymia’s work in the spotlight for a few weeks now, and we thought it was time we did the same for both of them.

The husband and wife team who run the store, Charlie and Daniela Aquilina, are both ITS graduates and are very proud of their genuine homemade products. The couple strive to produce foods that are made from local and seasonal ingredients, ensuring the Maltese economy supports those who work so hard to fuel it.

“We all love the Maltese tiles that every Nanna had in her house,” the artisans posted, “we grow up looking at them but never thought they will link us to our past.”

Boy, how wrong we all were.

Share this amazing homegrown collaboration with your friends and family for all the Maltese tile nostalgia!
