Kabana was founded by Stavros Eleftheriou in 1975. Housed in what was once an old Mission Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this historic building is now home to the skilled goldsmiths and craftspeople that make Kabana’s distinctive Collections. Kabana, renowned and undisputed Master of Inlay, is one of the few jewelry manufacturing companies in the United States that does not outsource any portion of our product. From the drawing table to finish, each piece is produced entirely in the United States. Our innovative design team creates pieces of exquisite beauty. Our artisans not only utilize the traditional methods of inlay but also take it to new heights of expertise. It is the combination of contemporary design, time-honored methods and our state of the art production facility that results in Kabana’s Collections.
Kabana stays faithful to the old traditions of handmade jewelry. However, to ensure and maintain our reputation for high precision and the quality of our product, Kabana employs the latest in technology with high tech machines and tools. Our almost non-existent personnel turnover has enabled us to train employees for many years, turning them into masters of skill.
The secret behind Kabana’s ever-growing success stems from the union of two essential factors. The first one is Kabana’s design, outstanding, innovative,contemporary and delightfully feminine. The second factor is its perfect, tried-and-tested, renowned craftsmanship, ultimately resulting in Kabana’s legendary quality and comfort.
At Kabana, countless attentions go into the smallest crafting details. Wearing a piece of Kabana jewelry is a whole experience, made both of visual pleasure and of comfort. Kabana is adamant: a piece is great, only when its beauty 100% matches its comfort and flawlessness. That is why the manufacturing process insures, through various tough fabrication specifics and quality controls, that, people are both proud and happy to own and wear a Kabana piece.
Inlay jewelry is a process as precise as it is intricate. Yet Kabana aims for that challenging difficulty, never forgetting that each crafted piece will eventually become a unique, significant piece of Jewelry. At Kabana, technical prowess means reaching even higher beauty and elegance. In the end, being so firm on quality and so forward-looking on craftsmanship will dramatically favor that what has to shine through: craftsmanship is in the extreme smoothness of the inlay, the wholeness of the piece and the extreme purity of its design.
We will always be our biggest competition, as we continue to pursue the ultimate, the unique, and the extraordinary.
