Brooklyn based makers and manufacturers, Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat, made their first product line for their 2010 wedding, the popular state shaped cutting board. The two wanted a personalized and sentimental way to display cheese, and came up with state-shaped cutting boards for each of their home states (Michigan and Connecticut), with hearts on their hometowns. Delightfully, others wanted the boards and a custom, family run housewares and gift company was born. AHeirloom has been in operation since early 2011 and continues to produce American made products including our latest best selling family of cake stands.
Amy and Bill believe in their small business and manufacturing in the United States. The pieces are designed to be cherished and passed down — to engage those who use them and resonate with each use. Their quality comes not only from the design and materials, but from Amy and Bill’s belief in new manufacturing techniques. Whether things are made by hand or by machine, they can be timeless.
