Cutlery - The history of the EME brand

Cutlery is a collective term for the various metal tools used to cut, scoop and serve food. The word "cutlery" is derived from the Latin "bestia", meaning "beasts", as it was originally used to cut and eat meat during feasts.

The history of cutlery dates back to ancient times when people used tools to cut and eat food. In ancient times, tools were made from materials such as wood, ivory, and bone, and they were used to cut and serve food.

In the Middle Ages, cutlery was made of metal, such as silver, gold and copper. It was especially popular among the wealthier classes, who used it for dining at banquets and other important occasions.

During the Renaissance, cutlery became increasingly important, and it was used by people from all walks of life. It was made of metal, such as silver, gold and copper, and sometimes other materials such as porcelain and wood.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, cutlery became more and more popular, and it was made of different types of metal, such as stainless steel, brass and copper. It was used for both formal and informal occasions, and it was often used for dining at banquets and other important occasions.

Today cutlery is made from a wide variety of materials, such as stainless steel, brass, copper, porcelain and wood. It is used for both formal and informal occasions, and it is available in a wide variety of styles and designs.

1974: The birth of EME cutlery.
The Mori family has been rooted since time immemorial in Lumezzane, a country with deep historical roots in metalworking and in particular in the production of cutlery. In 1974, Egidio Mori, with his brothers already working in the sector as subcontractors of stainless steel cutlery products and components, started his company with the pragmatic spirit typical of Brescia entrepreneurship.

From that ancient and hard traditional production, Egidio Mori's highly innovative entrepreneurial adventure blossomed in the early 1980s with the presentation of articles designed by himself. A few years later, the production of cutlery with handles in colored resin began, arousing strong interest from customers and the market, which allowed the company to position itself at the top of world markets in a short time.
