Jeremie Then and Now
In 1976, our founder, Jim Carroll was visiting the remote town of Jeremie in Haiti, and was fascinated by the hand crafted products of the town’s artisans. While there, Jim asked a local wood carver to make a hand full of red wooden apples for a friend in the US. The almost magical quality of those first hand turned apples led to the Jeremie Corporation of today. No two were alike. They were a beautiful collection of distinct differences— and their substance still resonates in the dining room of Jim’s friend.
In the coming years, the apple became a “must have” for shops from Maine to California. You may have one of those apples, and if you do, know your treasure. There is no other quite like it. Handcrafting is like that; no two will ever be the same.
The original creative team and the craftsmen that began Jeremie continue as a family today. They have imagined, refined and produced thousands of designs that decorate homes throughout the world.
Today, Jeremie is a wholesaler/manufacturer of over 600 handcrafted, unique accessories for the home and garden—sold only to the trade. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, Jeremie is responsible for the employment of more than a thousand people in the US and throughout the world. The energy and enthusiasm of our family of staff and artists are the reasons for our continued success. We are ever mindful of our original roots and strive to maintain the same balance of values and quality that we started with 36 years ago.
All of Jeremie’s products are exclusively designed by us and handcrafted by our master craftsmen around the globe. We track current trends and capture them in wood, metal, ceramic, glass, wire, coconut, stone and other materials to create beautiful home and garden accessories. We collaborate with blacksmiths, sculptors and artisans in far-flung locations —from Haiti to the Philippines. These talented artists share our dedication in creating art filled with character, authenticity, imagination and surprise.
Jeremie’s Earth Friendly Philosophy
Being ecologically minded has been a company practice since our inception. We began by repurposing the metal from used steel drums into unique handmade accessories. As a result, over the years Jeremie has rescued hundreds of thousands of steel drums that were destined for landfills.
Jeremie’s Dedication To You
For over 36 years, Jeremie has taken our customers’ wishes and desires to heart. That’s why every item we design is filled with charm, personality and surprise. All crafted with you in mind.
