Mitercraft Wood Bookmarks Hand Made in America - Functional Art for Your Favorite Books - Chickadee Songbird Artwork by Kathleen Barsness
Each of our wooden bookmarks is handcrafted from carefully selected, environmentally responsible wood that only comes from well managed forests. This sweet little chickadee artwork by Kathleen Barsness is on one side of the solid sapele wood bookmark, except for the two solid strips of various inlaid woods accenting both sides. The wood inlay and outer border wood combinations will vary with each bookmark. A brown rope tassel adds the finishing touch to the tone and design, plus it helps keep your book's pages well marked. The exceptional wood grain we select adds a great deal to the natural beauty of each bookmark and will truly make yours a one-of-a-kind. Take a moment to explore our wide variety of collectible bookmarks.
We are so fortunate to collaborate with talented artists who share their work to further enhance our products. Drawing and digital media artist Kathleen Barsness loves to explore what she considers fantastic and other-worldly subject matter - perhaps in part familiar to video games such as The World of Warcraft. She captures what is so special and unique about her subjects bringing an emotional connection to her audience.
Craftsmanship and Stewardship Make the Difference
Nestled in a hundred-acre forest of lush, green ferns and towering fir and cedar trees, Mitercraft is a company truly inspired by its surroundings. Using only hand-selected, sustainably harvested wood, we celebrate its natural beauty by hand-making products that allow the glory to be showcased. Our passion leads us to design unique bookmarks with pride that only comes from a handcrafted process.
We’re excited to be a part of the resurgence of makers and old-world craftsmanship. We’ve been handcrafting our bookmarks with the same multi-step work process since 1991. Technology may come and go, and it certainly helps enhance our products, but there is no substitute for good, old-fashioned woodworking that produces heirloom quality products. Our complex production steps include precision cutting, laminating, shaping, sanding, polishing, finishing, laser engraving, drilling, and tasseling.
Our love and respect for the environment and the extraordinary surroundings in which we live guides our workplace practices. We take care to recycle leftover pieces into other products, making each a unique work of art. When a piece is ready to be shipped we hand prepare it, sealing it in a clear, protective sleeve with artist information. What arrives at your doorstep is a creative, handmade, thoughtfully crafted product from start to finish.
