While attending his cousin’s wedding in Hawaii in the mid 1970’s, Irv Zakheim noticed the tremendous demand for puka shell necklaces. With an eye for recognizing opportunities and a heart for taking advantage of them, Zakheim moved to Hawaii and began selling the necklaces on the beach. Eventually, he started importing the necklaces from the Philippines to feed the craze. That was the beginning of Zakheim’s import business, and the seed for the company that blossomed into Zak Designs, Inc. – today’s global leader in licensed children’s dinnerware and fashion forerunner of contemporary tableware.
