Learn the Story Behind Mariposa
Whether you've just discovered us, or have accompanied us on our more than
three-decade-long journey, we're delighted to know you!
It started with a Vision
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!
Sustainable Since 1983
Environmental sustainability has changed since our founding, enabling us to proudly share that our pieces are made of recycled materials. When we started back in 1983, that was taboo!
We're proud to be an industry leader, and have been invested in eco-friendly awareness for more than three decades.
The latest endeavor? Planting for the planet. Our partners in Mexico have launched a reforestation program with the goal of balancing our carbon footprint.
Commitment and Core Values
We are motivated by the core values to create unique products–ensuring that artisans enjoy competitive wages, excellent benefits, and safe working conditions–all while attaining the high standards set here in the U.S.
Our partners in Mexico share this same passion and commitment to the environment and our people, focusing on environmental management, labor relations, hygiene and security, civil protection.
It's easy to see that we are setting world class standards.
