about AHeirloom

At American Heirloom, we embrace tradition. The comforting rituals of everyday, the informal, but meaningful, gestures of family and community: these values are the foundation on which we’ve built our company. Balancing family and work is a huge part of what we stand for.

We’ve built our brand of home + design products on loyalty, integrity of design, and strength of function. There is an honesty to the forms we create, beautiful shapes built to stand up to year after year of birthdays, anniversaries and movie nights.

Amy + Bill started American Heirloom in 2011 after fashioning their first trademark, state-shaped cutting boards for their wedding reception. The response was passionate, demand grew, and AH was born. We’ve grown the line to include all manner of tabletop and barware, with a particular eye on quality of materials and craftsmanship.

What began as a small, local Brooklyn business has grown into an enterprise that focuses on innovative manufacturing and digital processes. Our cutting-edge approach to construction ensures our pieces are the best quality on the market, while our production methods minimize waste. It’s important to us that with each simple, iconic item, we bring the highest standards to the table, and ultimately, to yours.

our background

Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat have shared an appreciation for beautiful food, housewares and inspired engineering since they studied Architecture at Columbia University.
Their combined backgrounds in the food industry and fabrication found a perfect home in AHeirloom. Today, Amy spearheads operations for the business and incorporates the tradition of family and values into every facet of their work and life together.

our philosophy

AHeirloom 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 -- like these cutting boards, which serve as reminders of where you came from, or where you’d like to be.
