This guy answers the phone and replies to your email. He is a co-owner of Memento with his wife, Shelley Harvan. Together they design the products you see on this website. He builds most of the products with his hands. That guy is me, Chris Harvan.
Our mission and goal is to put meaningful hand made artwork where we think it has the chance to do the most good - in people's homes in order to remember and honor loved ones. We have taken our time navigating these waters to try to build something sustainable that is more than a business: a way to nourish human need and hopefully ease even the smallest bit of anguish in times of loss.
We think everyone deserves something real and made by hand in those times and we are working on ways to make this affordable while offering truly unique and amazing works of art for those who would prefer something custom.
The nature of our culture's established timelines for preparing for death demand that we work exclusively with the trade rather than directly with consumers. That doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you. If you put us in touch with your funeral home, we can arrange for individual sales of our work. Depending on what we have in stock, we may be able to do this in a timely fashion.
