Our Story

  

We’re the Alexander Brothers and this is our story.

 

We grew up in a home that fostered a love for the handmade. So much so, dad insisted that craftsmen training came first in our lives. With a heritage of accomplished inventors and tradesmen, who could blame him?

Our parents took us along on frequent visits to antique stores, galleries, and other places that sold fine furnishings. Mom always reminded us at the door, “Look with your eyes, not with your hands.” For us boys, that wasn’t always easy. 

Learning traditional methods of artistry—blacksmithing, woodworking, and leather crafting—was never a chore for us. As teens, we didn’t just apprentice with master craftsmen, we built our own forge and workshops in the backyard. 

Today, we thrive on creating beauty in our lives, and the lives of others. By transforming natural, raw materials into quality home and lifestyle goods, we write stories to tell for generations to come. If you love the smell of leather, the warmth of real wood, and the heft of metal, let us help write your story, too.

 

Drew

When you meet Drew the first thing you notice is his million-dollar smile and his blackened, calloused hands from almost 20 years of blacksmithing. The oldest of the Alexanders, he’s also the peacemaker who’s always looking for and finding the good in people. If there’s not much resembling brotherly love going on around him, Drew keeps everyone on the same team. When not working his day job, you’ll find him either hammering metal, wrangling his three girls, or both at the same time.

 

Shea

Whether you want to raise a barn or lead an arctic expedition, Shea's the guy to organize your team. Always hustling to get things done, he has an innate ability to draw the beauty out of natural elements to present them to the world. Shea draws strength from his surroundings, so his outings frequently lead him into the woods to watch the wildlife, hunt for burls, or soak in the peaceful sounds of nature.

 

 Josiah

Josiah is the guy you’ve known your whole life, even if you just met. He’s an old soul in a young body whose closest friend is old enough to be his grandfather. Josiah’s an ever-calming presence in the midst of a storm who’s long to listen, slow to speak, and quick to comfort. He's always ready to lend a helping hand to family, friends, and community.

 

Gabriel

Not to be overshadowed by his older brothers, Gabriel excels at everything he does—which is a lot. From drawing, photography, and music to inventing, designing, and building, he has an eye for the beautiful and a mind for the mechanical. A formidable chess opponent, Gabriel will keep you laughing with his quick wit and unending sarcasm.
