Mary Jurek Design Celebrates Ten Years of Keeping It Green
Mary Jurek Design, Inc.(www.maryjurekdesigninc.com), a Los Angeles-based luxury goods company specializing in hand-made stainless steel tableware and home design products, is proud to celebrate its ten-year anniversary with the launch of its responsibly-harvested wood product line.
Founded in 1998 by international design award recipient Mary Jurek, whose designs were sold by Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Piaget, and Gubelin of Switzerland ignited her infatuation with stainless steel, the company stands firm in its philosophy of creating products that are sustainable, eco-friendly, and are manufactured and produced in a manner that provides economic development to some of the world's poorest areas.
"As a female entrepreneur, I feel truly blessed to have a thriving business that has maintained its original intention of utilizing timeless materials that are sustainable and durable as well as classically beautiful. With the launch of this product line we aren't pretending to be doing something brilliant and new; instead we are celebrating the fact that we have been doing for years what many companies are just now beginning to do: reaching a triple bottom line that includes economic, environmental, and social success."
The responsibly-harvested wood product line utilizes indigenous woods and incorporates distinctive detailing into every item. Each product is created and developed by Mary Jurek to enhance and complement the core collection of her eco-friendly stainless steel tableware. The combination of the materials brings together an outstanding contrast of strong, durable metal elegantly united with hand carved wood. Relying fully on the time-honored tradition of craftsmanship the collection will always be entirely produced by hand with the guiding principle of art with purpose.
