Tell us about your business.

Bounkit started from my living room, and in 2006 when my wife was expecting our first son, I had no other option but to bite the bullet and get a small studio in midtown. It has been a great journey because I really enjoy what I do, and especially when we get so many compliments from our customers and the media.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

Our company grew to be of twelve employees. We moved to a whole bright floor with a showroom, kitchen, dining room, stones room, and enough space to celebrate all the employees birthdays and special occasions.

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by the colorful land where I was born Morocco. Also by my fascination with the old Hollywood movies. And last by the confident ladies who are not afraid to wear bold jewelry in an elegant way.

What makes your business stand out?

I think my business stands out because the collection is made in USA. We have a great relationship with our customers. The editors like the collection as well as the celebrities.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Follow your dreams and never give up at the first obstacle you will encounter.

What does American Made mean to you?

American Made means to me quality, Independence and pride.
