Our Story

About Us:

The Utensil Company was started by me, Jen, and my husband Aaron.  We started this little store to fill the artistic void that we were feeling in our life. We have since rebranded to Nerds and Nomads. 

Our goal is to provide fans like us with high quality, everyday items that are unique and unexpected. Each piece embodies the spirit of the modern nerd. With our signature distressing and powder coating technique, our pieces are unique and designed with exceptional finishes. 

We do not compromise on the quality of our products. We offer only the finest brands (Yeti, etc. ) and only the highest grade stainless steel for our flatware as well as our unbranded water bottles, tumblers, mugs and metal straws. 

Our designs our sold exclusively through us.
