Americaware is a leading designer, manufacturer, and supplier of fun, unique, upscale products to the travel, souvenir, specialty merchandise, pet and promotional merchandise markets.
Originally called the Feltman-Langer company in the 1980’s, we originated the first wide based ceramic travel mugs which were a huge success with coffee drinkers around the U.S. who liked to take their cup of joe with them in the car while on the way to work. Soon boaters and office professionals discovered the stable wide base mugs with no slip rubber bottom pads were perfect not only for sitting on the dash board of cars but also functioned well on boats, and prevented desktop spills while working in the office. Soon we developed patented lids which fit the ceramic mugs to help retain the heat making spills even more unlikely, and enabled users to drink while in motion without splashing hot coffee on themselves.
During the nineties our name was changed to Americaware, Inc. There was a huge explosion of gourmet coffee retailers and Americans were drinking more coffee than ever. Our product line was expanded to include shapes to fit auto cup holders, special nautical designs for marine application, and more and more style was added to a product already popular for its functional superiority.
In the mid-nineties we began expand our product line to include other ceramic products including casual hand painted dinner and serve ware by renowned designer Ann Mallory. At this time we also began to produce coffee mugs with cutting edge designs aimed at various location markets featuring graphics depicting various cities, states and even countries. During this period, most of the Americaware product was designed for and sold to major retail chains in the housewares and coffee specialty markets.
In 2004 we began to offer our unique style of souvenir oriented ceramic mugs to retailers in smaller more manageable quantities, with an in stock service program for locations around the US with our classic in the mold designs , vibrant graphics, and signature looks. By 2006 this part of our business began to dominate our sales and quickly became the main focus of Americaware. Over the last decade we expanded our souvenir, specialty and promotional product line to include much more than just ceramic mugs.
Today the Americaware product line includes not only ceramic mugs but also, shot glasses, ceramic shots, stainless steel waterbottles, tumblers, tote bags, neoprene coin purses, canvas zip pouches, leather can coolers, pet mugs and tumblers and the list is continuing to grow.
