We are a small woman-owned American business that curates unique gifts handcrafted by American artisans. As two native, proud New Englanders we wanted to share the unique products crafted in New England with the rest of the world. We fell head over heels in love with these wonderful Maine-made and eco-friendly mats. We both share wonderful family memories of vacations on the Maine coast, so these mats were quite nostalgic for us!
We left our heart in New England. When Jeff a career marketing professional was recruited to head up a company in Ohio, we were torn. Our entire family and life were in New England. But the economy was struggling, we had our wonderful children to support, and we understood it was important to accept that opportunity.
Now, as displaced New Englanders, we believe even more strongly in sharing our region's products with the rest of the world. Products crafted by American artisans. As our business grew we were contacted by artisans outside of New England to support their unique creations. We loved that idea and expanded to carry items that are crafted in the USA. You can tell which products are from New England because we always note that on the product page which state it is from.
If an artist is using a significant amount of imported material to produce their product we ask for that information so we can share it on the product page with you.
When people turned to their computers to search for this innovative product, The New England Trading Company was the only place they could be purchased.
To this day, ours are The Original and the only recycled lobster rope doormats available. As we grew, we gained some national media coverage. That same year, we also were a winner of StartupNation. One area that we have always focused on is excellence in service to our customers.
We aim to delight each and every customer and will go above and beyond to make sure each one is delighted. Each of the blankets we carry has a hefty weight and feel that is unsurpassed. Thanks for being so responsive to my wishes. Looking forward to our next transaction. Will definitely be shopping through you again! I'm excited to have a piece of New England on the other coast!
I will definitely be a return customer! We went to your website — we LOVE it. It was a gift for our basketball coach and the banquet is tomorrow night. I so appreciate you taking the time to look through your stock and find the right bag. I truly appreciate your attention to detail and customer service. I will be be sure to order again soon! Can't wait to get them down to keys to see how they look!
I am soo glad that your company has actual persons on the other end when you need them. Best wishes to you and your company. Your items are beautiful. You have a customer for life. I will keep watching your amazing website for another color.
