About

AHeirloom is a collaboration between, Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat. While getting married in the spring of 2010, we were at a loss for cheese boards that were personalized and sentimental for our reception’s cheese display.

The response has been so overwhelmingly positive that we have struck out to produce a line of personalized housewares for our home and yours.

We also welcomed our first baby, Henry in late September 2011. We love making our work personal and feel very fortunate to be able to share with all of you. Thank you for so many kind notes and happy wishes, we are having the time of our lives.

OUR PROCESS
We are digital fabricators and each board is drawn using the software techniques that we have been trained in.

Bill has been a partner in a successful fabrication shop in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn since 2005 and provides our company with the tools and skills necessary to handle the volume of orders. The quality of our product reinforces our belief in new manufacturing techniques and our ability to make a living doing what we love whether by hand or through new technology.
