Who We Are
Bohemian Imports is an American company located in Atlanta, Georgia. Currently, we represent seven factories deep within the heart of the Czech Republic. Our oldest factory dates back to 1712, a full 71 years before the opening of the Waterford Glassworks in Ireland. The cutting room, which is still powered by the stream flowing under the factory floor, lays testament to the time honored traditions of over 1300 years of Czech glass making heritage.
For centuries Bohemian Crystal has been the most sought after glass in the world surpassing Venetian, Austrian, Irish, and French crystal. Bohemian Crystal Chandeliers have been the choice of royalty all over the world, with the most notable installations being Versailles and our own presidential palace, The White House.
After WWII, Czechoslovakia fell under control of the Soviet Union and became hidden from the western world behind the iron curtain. Since the Velvet Revolution freed both the Czech and Slovak Republics on November 17, 1989, the doors of trade have re-opened for the Czech Republic allowing their beautiful hand crafted crystal and glass creations to spread across the globe once again.
Should you become weary of shopping, feel free to learn more about the production of Crystal in our Factory Tour section, or, take a Czech Trek to the ancient lands of Bohemia.
Again, welcome to our website. If we may be of any service to you it would certainly be our pleasure.
