Three Branches, One Dynamite Brand

In celebration of Las Vegas Market, we decided to chat with Hester & Cook to see what they had to say about the upcoming trends, what they love about market, and what they’re excited about for 2015. See below for some of their insights!


Why Las Vegas Market? What do you look forward to most? 

Vegas is an up-and coming market.  We have seen a lot of people choosing Vegas over other west coast shows, so the momentum going into this market is exciting. We look forward to connecting with more buyers who might be seeing our set up for the first time as well as getting to reconnect with current customers.  Building relationships with our returning customers is one of our favorite things about market!

What trends are you excited about this market / upcoming year? 

We are happy to see the trend toward American made, small batch, thoughtful, and/or charitable products.  We love that people are being more and more conscious about where they are spending their dollars, and that they prefer to support companies with a philanthropic side.

We pride ourselves in doing everything the way it used to be – the way it SHOULD – be done. From getting a live person on the phone the moment you call us, to being sure your store’s customers are satisfied with our products, we truly go the extra mile.

Would you share a little about your brand philosophy / mission statement, and why supporting local is important to you?

Supporting local is important to us because we think of the people behind the concept. Behind every independent shop is often an owner who is passionate about their community.  People who care about their communities make the world a better place. Each dollar spent in local shops goes toward keeping these independents in business, and they keep local economies healthy.

Are there any new & upcoming collections/lines or designer partnerships that you’re excited about for this year?

We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Chilewich, the premier name in traditional placemats and runners.  This Chilewich + Kitchen Papers launch blends the newest design from Chilewich with the fresh effortlessness of Kitchen Papers.  The collection includes a placemat, reversible coaster, place card, a runner (which doubles as gift wrap), and introduces a unique decorative twine which can be used as a napkin ring, an accent on wrapped packages, or in countless other applications.
