I have always loved the shapes of states and countries; something about the graphic, organic lines draws me in every time. Naturally, I'm also a sucker for anything state shaped, which led me to AHeirloom. A Brooklyn based company created by Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat. They made their first state-shaped cutting boards for their wedding in 2010 and quickly turned it into a successful company featuring all fifty states as well as some specialty designs too. The cherry on top is that all of their products are made in the US. Definitely check them out. Their site features really beautiful woodwork that is perfect for summer wedding or housewarming gifts.
