It began in Los Angeles, 1985 . . . Meredithe (who's childhood nickname was Meri Meri) sitting at her kitchen table . . . some scissors and pens, a BIG pot of glitter. Their first cards were made that way.
The magic began. Local Stationery stores in Los Angeles loved those cards and asked for more. One kitchen table and one pair of scissors wasn't enough. They needed lots of kitchen tables and an ENORMOUS pot of glitter.
Then, in 1987, they presented their little range of handmade cards at the National Stationery Show in New York and the response was phenomenal. Pretty soon there were major stores like Bergdorf Goodman taking on Meri Meri for their christmas season. More kitchen tables and GREAT BIG SACKS of glitter!
Now based in a studio outside of London, Meredithe heads a studio of 25 designers and artworkers and Meri Meri products are sold all over the world.
