The Robert Emmet Company was founded in 1987 by the late Robert Emmet Reilly. Mr. Reilly was an avid student of Irish history and culture, and wished to build a business around his love of all things Irish. Realizing that the demand for Irish and Celtic themed gifts exceeded the quantity and variety that a small country like Ireland could produce, he founded one of the very first United States-based companies in the market. Mr. Reilly passed away in 2001, and since then his son Tom Reilly has been in charge of the business.
Today, Robert Emmet Company manufactures over 300 products, the vast majority of which are made locally. We work with a variety of jewelry and gift-related suppliers in the Providence, Rhode Island area to produce a truly home-grown product line.
Robert Emmet Company products are currently available in hundreds of retail gift shops throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in several major gift catalogues and a variety of Irish Gift web sites.
