Anna Rabinowicz founded ANNA New York in 2002, in her grandmother’s basement in Queens, New York. It was a family business and a matriarchy from the very beginning. Her mother and grandmother put the small rubber feet on the bottoms of our agate gemstone coasters, our first design, and took charge of shipping. After Anna’s grandmother passed away, her young daughter Talia became involved in our company, helping with design development. Today, we continue to be a female-owned and operated company.
