Caribou is more well-known in the Americas as the reindeer. A species of deer especially adapted for colder climates, caribou have large antlers and thick fur.

Everyone likes to spend time outdoors when it’s pretty, but sometimes the conditions are not ideal.  If you have a patio or deck, sometimes it’s nice to have an outdoor-friendly area rug to soften the ground underfoot and make the outdoors feel a bit more like the cozy indoors.

In 1895, jeweler and entrepreneur Joseph Mayer sailed from Europe to New York Harbor to build a new life in the United States. An adventurer at heart, he first journeyed to Seattle, WA, at the cusp of the Great Klondike. He struck gold and soon built one of the finest and largest jewelry companies in the United States. Though the company name has since changed from Joseph Mayer & Bros. Inc. to Metal Arts Group, Joseph Mayer’s inspiring legacy leaves a lasting mark on the American Jewelry Industry.
