Meet the Founder
Mariposa is born
Over thirty-five years ago, Founder & CEO Livia Cowan had a vision that beauty could emerge from 100% recycled glass and aluminum. She set off on a road trip through Mexico in her camper, and returned with a truckload of glassware made from recycled Coke bottles. Soon after, she set up shop in her parent's garage... and Mariposa was born!
Mariposa is proud to be an industry leader, creating unique gift and tableware from recycled materials for more than three decades. As we continue on our adventure, we raise a glass to all of you who have traveled with us...and extend a heartfelt welcome to the next generation that shares our commitment to the marriage of sustainability and high design!
