Our Story

From our home to your table.

We believe coffee, tea, beer, and spirits are not meant to be guzzled, but should be savored. These are things that make life enjoyable, and our drinkware enhances these everyday feelings of contentment.

Amanda Siska started Bread and Badger® in 2006 to nourish the soul, and remind you of special events while you sip your favorite beverages. Every new product is tested in our own home before we offer it for sale, so we're confident that it will live up to your expectations.

We offer a wide range of stock designs for different interests which can be purchased as-is on our various drinkware styles, or personalized for special occasions. We specialize in custom animal portraits, from pets to the exotic, and have many years experience turning logos into sandblasting stencils that can be reordered whenever you need client or company gifts.

Stay updated on our newest designs, since and you won't want to miss the opportunity to get your new favorite cup.

What does "Bread and Badger" mean?

The term “bread and butter” means to provide a steady income and financial stability. I wanted to be the backbone for my little family, and make sure we were always provided for, even in uncertain times.

"Bread and butter" is also basic sustenance. Our products nourish the soul with designs that make you feel happy, and remind you of special events while you take your meals and sip your favorite beverages. We believe coffee, tea, beer, and spirits are not meant to be guzzled, but should be enjoyed and savored. These are things that make life most enjoyable, and our drinkware is meant to enhance these feelings of contentment.

The word “badger” came into our name because I was inspired by the honey badger. Honey badgers are fearless creatures that will not back down from a fight, and are impervious to venom. Running a small business is never easy, and I’m inspired every day by those tough little animals that can take on so much that other animals fear.
