Quality is an obsession of the entire Riva team. From the choice of the raw material, the meticulous care with the preparation of the objects, from the packaging to the service: Riva's culture values a unique, impeccable and resistant object. The stainless steel used by Riva is the 18/10: this number is the seal of quality of the objects of the brand, and make reference to the composition of the metal: 18% of chromium and approximately 10% of nickel. This composition gives to the Stainless Steel a high resistance to corrosion and oxidation much superior to the conventional Stainless Steel. Riva Touch is the polishing process developed by Riva to finalize our objects. This means that the work done is individual for each object what ensures better brightness and finish, in an exclusive system of hand polishing made with a special export type of wool - the same wool used in the international confections. A special material that results in a truly incomparable shine.
