WALK WITH US.
Vidalia Mills raw selvedge denim, all-cotton fabric, wax canvas outerwear and Pendleton-woven wool are just a few of the durable materials we use in constructing our garments and goods. Meant to last - meant to be handed down to the next generation.
Ginew incorporates family symbols and teachings into the garments as well as focusing on made-in-USA construction. Part of our ethos is Native Americans uplifing Native Americans and in the process creating a collection to be worn by all. Go ahead, take our garments on an adventure...and wear with spirit friends.
Ginew (Gih-noo) is the first Native American-owned denim collection. This family business was founded by Amanda Bruegl – Oneida, Stockbridge-Munsee and Erik Brodt – Ojibwe.
Amanda and Erik are from Wisconsin and currently reside in Portland, Oregon. The couple jointly crafted the first series of belts from their wedding buffalo, which was hunted, prepared, tanned and hand-dyed by them with their families.
Since then, the collection has expanded to include denim, tees, accessories and other goods, with each item they make drawing direct inspiration from their cultures and relatives.
