Since 1980 we have quietly set trends in the Houseware & Gift Markets working with fine American wood, leather and other mediums to deliver tabletop items found nowhere else. We’re family owned and operated – and design, make & imprint products for wholesale distribution to the gourmet & gift trade e.g. retailers, mail order catalogs, restaurants & culinary academies, wineries … even popular Food Channel shows (yes that’s our “Original Wine Bottle Pepper Mill” that Emeril’s used for the past +5 years on his “Live” show).

In 2001 we began serving the Promotional Market so that you and your clients could enjoy the same quality products, service and experience including food safety as the pros.  We’re quick, nimble and thoughtful of your needs. And we offer low minimums and exceptional service that’s second to none as evidenced by the 5 Star Ratings we’ve consistently received from ASI and Sage Distributors for the past 4 years in a row.

How are our products effective? They combine attractive design, commercial quality craftsmanship and attractive price points, making them:

  • Excellent movers with healthy margins
  • Healthy repeat and new business generators, and
  • When imprinted … powerful mediums for promoting brands, loyalty, events, products, programs and performance because recipients proudly use, display & enjoy them with family & friends for years.

As you would expect from our name – most of our items are American made using some of the best woods and hides which also come from sustainable, environmentally responsible American sources. And you might be pleased to learn that much of our raw material sourcing and manufacturing continue to help some of the most economically isolated and deprived areas of our country where they’ve been located for in some cases 50 to over  100 years.

So please enjoy our web site and don’t hesitate to Contact us if you have a specific request, a challenging client project, or just want to learn more. Getting started couldn’t be quicker or easier!
