Our story

Table Manners was created in October 2017 by Wivina Chaneliere following a career spanning 25 years within the Homewares industry in Australia.

Wivina was the Managing Director for Tefal cookware and developed the brand from a virtually unknown brand in cookware to one of the leading premium cookware brands by building strategic partnerships with major Department stores in Australia and associating with world recognised chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Masterchef chefs as well as Guillaume Brahimi.

Following the success of the Tefal cookware brand, Wivina identified a number of other brands in the French market that had lots of potential and she believed would be successful and have strong appeal with the Australian consumer.

The company represents now 5 very strong brands highly respected and recognised in France and around the world that are part of the portfolio of brands the company wants to promote and develop.

In addition to the strength in their innovations, quality of the products, amazing collections, some of the brands that Table Manners supports have the unique label of EPV.
