who we are
Delight Flatware is a husband and wife team based in Ontario, CA. My Name is Estela, my husband Darren and I have been married for 7 years and we have two amazing, giggly, high energy kids who drive us crazy… and we love it! We believe that parenthood comes with a lot of sacrifices. We also believe that those sacrifices should not include the ability to give our children healthy (preferably organic) food or the ability to buy high quality American products without feeling like we’re breaking the bank. There’s nothing in this world more important than our children, and we realize that many parents feel the same as we do. We want to make Made in the USA accessible to all.
how we got here
As parents of 2 young children, we know the joys of teaching our little ones to feed themselves. The experience taught us a lot about what does and doesn’t work when it comes to our kids. After years of plastic and partially plastic forks and spoons, we noticed they tend to degrade from everyday use and runs through the dishwasher. Worst of all, moisture builds up in the cracks and crevices leading to an ugly smell.
We made the switch to stainless steel and found that many kid’s forks were too sharp or not functional, many spoons were too wide or too shallow, and many sets were made for babies and not sized for our growing kids. And of the sets we did like, none were made in the USA.
From that realization Delight Flatware was born. We spent a year and a half working with our manufacturer designing a fork and spoon that would be unique, functional and perfect for little hands, designing a brand and a logo, and everything else that goes into a new business. After all that work we’ve created a product based on what we believe works for us and will work for you as well, and we hope you will love it.
The brand Delight comes from a very special promise in God’s word. Psalms 37:4 says “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” We believe that there is no better way to live than to Delight in the Lord, and it informs every decision we make as a family and as a business.
