WATCH our buckle being fabricated. Each Ginew buckle is hand-built by SmithShop, a dynamic, metal-centric studio in Detroit, USA. Ginew designed the buckle to feature minimal detailing, symmetry and unfailing durability. Each buckle is individually fabricated using industrial strength, solid brass. The brass is cut, heated, formed, forged, soldered, carefully-finished, and stamped by hand using time-honored metal-smith techniques. Each buckle is the culmination of unwavering commitment to durable materials and high quality craftsmanship.
