Mikasa

George Aratani, a Japanese American entrepreneur and philanthropist, founded Mikasa (then known as American Commercial Inc.) in California in 1948.  The company started as a dinnerware importer then became a wholesaler supplying dinnerware to the finest retailers in the country.  It was in 1957 when the brand name was officially changed to Mikasa

Mikasa is actually a name of a mountain in Nara, Japan and means “young grass”, a fitting name for a company that, although has over 60 years’ experience in the industry, continues to evolve, committing to only the highest levels of quality and design not only of dinnerware, but now also of serveware, drinkware, flatware, and other home accents.
