Mariachi Imports has been developing innovative household products since 1994 when we first brought handcrafted, lead-free tableware to the U.S. from Mexico. Ten years ago we designed and started to produce the phenomenally successful Sweep Dreams broom line of working designer brooms in Thailand. This was quickly followed by the introduction of Mad Mats, the best-made line of outdoor rugs on the planet - indispensible for carefree outdoor living.
Founders Amy Kimmich and Maury Letven have always looked for the design potential in otherwise mundane household products. Both graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art, and apply their creative training to all aspects of their business and product lines.
At the same time, Mariachi is dedicated to producing environmentally and socially responsible products. “We are passionate about two things “says Amy, “One, the environment, and two, fairness in the work place. It is essential to us to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. It means tighter margins for us, but it’s always worth it. In fact, we have found that incorporating this principle into the structure of all our operations is rewarding in a way that extra dollars could never be.” In the end, it’s actually pretty easy to do the right thing.
