From the end of the 19th century to roughly 1930, the "Craftsman Movement" was a turning point in American industrial history.

Libertarian William Morris along with John Ruskin founded the European 'Arts and Crafts' movement to counterbalance the Industrial Revolution's devaluation of the individual worker. The movement naturally emphasized handwork over mass-production and focused on carpentry, stained glass, copper, and hand wrought iron. Later, J.G. Stickley would champion the movement in North America, bringing the same ideals to US. These men were artists, poets, carpenters, and architects. They understood the value of individual workers and were not focused on bottom lines or profit margins. They formed companies that used high quality materials, employed skilled workers, produced exceptional products, and brought back a desire for lasting goods that would stand the test of time. They crafted homes, furniture, lighting, art, and textiles. They adhered to an incredibly high standard that they not only set for themselves, but for each other as well.

To call ones self a 'craftsman' was to declare "my work should speak for itself".

At GRIP6, our mission is in harmony with the craftsman era mentality from a century ago. We work very hard to produce a high quality product with materials that will last a lifetime, and we do it ourselves, right here in the USA. Though our trades are different, our commitment to creating a beautiful product with lasting quality is identical.

The Craftsman Collection is a commemorative series designed to pay homage to all the builders, all the artists and carpenters who stayed the extra hour just to make sure it was done right. Crafted from the same T6 Aluminum as our original series, the buckles are then coated with a durable, proprietary process that produces a beautiful impression of three classic wood grains. Hopefully you’ll be able to feel our commitment to quality as it becomes your favorite belt.
