Located in Montelupo, Italy, near Florence, Ceramiche IMA is a small company born in 1978. Three friends, Ivo, Mauro, and Alberto started the company, all three having 20+ years of personal experience in handmade Italian ceramics. With the formation of the new company I. M. A. (initials of the three owners) there came a new production and a particularly new style. Still a small company today, with about 25 workers, I. M. A. produces about 2,000 different items.
