It’s fitting that AHeirloom creations show up in many a wedding pic (and registry) since the idea for the company came to be when its founders, Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat, got married. “We needed a quick solution for displaying cheese and wanted our out-of-town guests to feel at home, so we made cutting boards shaped like our home states—Michigan and Connecticut—with hearts on our hometowns,” says Amy. The bamboo outlines were such a hit that the newlyweds decided to start making all 50 states and to try selling them online alongside turned-wood cake stands that were meant for their big day but weren’t quiiiite finished in time. And given their fondness for geography, it’s pretty fitting that Amy and Bill are firmly committed to making each and every one of the goods in their now-much-expanded line in America. “The beauty is that each piece can be traced back to the maker, and there are multiple lives that are positively affected when you purchase the item,” Amy explains. “Not only are we able to continue designing and supporting our family, but our staff, our material reps, our box manufacturers are also doing more business due to the success of our product—it’s reciprocal.” — maren ellingboe
