And our practices
We care about our relationships.
We are on first name basis with vendors in our area, striving to use local products whenever available. We work with small, family owned material and production houses that date back to the 1960s and companies that value small artisans.
By working within a sustainable and small scale supply chain, Yam can assure its customers of the following:
All items are handmade/assembled in-house.
All wax castings are made from recycled brass/bronze or sterling silver.
The majority of designs incorporate upcycled/deadstock materials bought from vintage warehouses on the East Coast and small sellers from around the country.
All online orders are shipped in biodegradable and/or recycled packaging.
If you shop with us in person or at a retail location, you may be given one of our deadstock keepsake boxes with your order. It’s our way of extending the packaging beyond the purchase. It’s also just a nice surprise.
