It all started with a love for the slopes and a bit of an obsession with doing something meaningful for our planet.

M&W Design is about more than creating keepsakes and apparel. It's about a deep, genuine love for our planet and a commitment to sustainable living. I've spent years in the scrap metal industry, witnessing firsthand the power of recycling and reusing. That experience ignited a desire in me to create something meaningful, something that resonates with our values and stands the test of time.

We're here to challenge the norm. We’ve been called crazy, because we see things differently, but that’s how you change the world. To us, sustainability isn't just a buzzword; it's woven into every single aspect of our business, from our suppliers, to our in-house manufacturing, to our packaging. 

We're crafting products that aren't destined for landfills but are meant to be cherished, to be part of your life's story. Our keepsakes are more than objects, they're symbols of a choice to be kinder to our earth.

So, here's to doing things our way – the fun, active, and earth-loving way. Let's keep making memories that are as pure and exciting as a day on the mountain — and make our planet a better place along the way.

Stay Cool,

Uniquely Sustainable Products

Being Stubbornly Sustainable isn’t just about switching to recycled packaging and planting a few trees. Our products are conceived from the ground up to be less wasteful and more memorable, using renewable resources and innovative manufacturing, making them some of the most unique souvenirs on the planet.

Making Memories, Not Trash

Most souvenirs have a certain vibe to them… cheap, plastic, cheesy… quite frankly, they’re trash. We’re rethinking what a souvenir can be: memorable, unique, meaningful — and sustainable. Our products are meant to be treasured keepsakes, not future waste.
