About Us

We believe products that express gratitude, reward performance, and celebrate excellence should harm neither the planet nor the people who create, purchase, or receive them.

Unlike most award vendors, we design and manufacture the majority of our products.  We're dedicated to creating elegant, original designs. We revere fine craftsmenship. We rely on vibrant colors and ethically-sourced, planet-friendly materials. Our environmental commitment is second to none.

Since 2001, our goal has been to create fair-wage jobs for recently-arrived refugees and others in our community who most need them. We have strengthened our commitments to community and environment through our designation as a Certified B Corp and Virginia Benefit Corporation. Like our fellow mission-driven companies, we strive to create positive change through business.
