Ginew is owned and operated by husband and wife, Erik and Amanda. Originally from Wisconsin they now live in Portland, Oregon. Their family story is a living, breathing narrative of Native American blacksmiths, farmers, machinists, clothiers and welders.
Erik and Amanda were both introduced to leatherwork at a young age by being taught to make our traditional Native American regalia and contemporary leather goods. They pour this skill and tradition into Ginew to make hand-built premium leather and heirloom goods using traditional methods with a focus on American-made materials. The philosophies of their tribes “Minobimaadidziiwin” – “Yohahi-yo sathahitan” embody the concept to live in a good way. Simply put, LIVE WELL. Each item incorporates elements of Native American and craftsmen heritage and is designed to last a lifetime
