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.

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’s jewelry is 100% made in the United States of America.

Kabana produces a labor-intensive product. Cutting, polishing and setting inlays is a minute and time-consuming activity.

In order to do so, Kabana provides many jobs in the USA, where the wages are higher than in Asia, but so are the craftsmanship and skills. It is also a great and loyal behavior, towards our country, and Kabana is extremely proud to support the local and national economy.

Finally, Kabana’s strength and most precious capital are its employees, many of which have been working here since its foundation. Kabana is a community, a family, deeply grounded in Albuquerque and New Mexico.

It means that the design team, the sales people and the customer service work in the same building as the production team. Everyone can see what the other is doing, and everyone has a daily, global overview of the company’s activity and production; employees know the product very well and see creations evolving at each stage.

Producing at home is a positive contribution to the life of the community, and to the economy, local, state-wide and national. This is a fundamental feature of the company and a source of great pride at Kabana.
