Dunoon was formed in 1974 by two former pottery executives who wanted to create original high-quality Stoneware Mugs for the UK market although today Dunoon exports to over 60 countries.
The first mug factory was opened in Dunoon Scotland Dunoon ceramics was named after the town.
After a few years, Dunoon opened a bigger and better factory in Staffordshire where they have since always produced original and new mug designs in Stoneware and Bone China. The mugs are made using a slip casting technique to create a substantial, fine, and lightweight mug.
Scotland remains the main inspiration for Dungeons designs with many Scottish themed large capacity mugs.
