Mitercraft Wood Bookmarks Hand Made in America - Functional Art for Your Favorite Books - Painting by Mary Beth Ihnken - Harold the Cow
Each of our wooden bookmarks is handcrafted from carefully selected, environmentally responsible wood that only comes from well managed forests. We hope you might make Harold the cow, by artist Mary Beth Ihnken, your new reading companion. He'll keep an eye on each page as it turns. The Artsy portrait of Harold fits nicely one side of the bookmark, framed by two solid strips of various inlaid woods with solid hardwood border along both outer edges. The inlay accent wood combinations will vary with each bookmark. A wheat color suede 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. The whimsical style of artist Mary Beth work is inspired by life on her farm in Ithaca, NY.
Craftsmanship and Stewardship Make the Difference
Nestled in a hundred-acre forest of lush, green ferns and towering fir and Madrona 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, cribbage boards, coasters, rulers, greeting cards and more 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 25-step woodworking 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 left over 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.
