Our Story

For more than 20 years, DEMDACO has designed and sold giftable products intended to “Lift the Spirit”—in times of celebration, when comfort is needed, or just to put a smile on someone’s face. The hand-curated artisan gifts it develops and distributes are chosen for their potential to help people nurture goodness in the lives of others, celebrate family and friends, and encourage people to treat themselves.

We partner with artists representing a wide range of styles and mediums, and whose work is consistent with our values. Products are curated through this filter, then carefully reproduced by skilled craftspeople around the world. Under the DEMDACO brand, product categories include Gifts, Home Décor, Entertaining, Fashion, Baby, Holiday, and Outdoors. DEMDACO also maintains a partnership with artist Susan Lordi, offering her popular Willow Tree® sculptures.

Based in Leawood, Kansas, the company is named for founders Demi and Dave Kiersznowski, who believe that business is not merely a financial endeavor, but first-and-foremost a human endeavor. This philosophy guides business decisions; informs how the company interacts with colleagues and customers; provides a framework for philanthropic work; and leads efforts to create a dynamic workplace.
