Goods
Fashioned in a militarized Steampunk/Dieselpunk style, or as we recently started to call our line - the Trenchpunk.

Materials
Working with authentic materials and using traditional craft methods is an essential professional issue for us - as we try to combine it with our personal vision of aesthetics.
We tend to rely on confidence of the materials and the techniques that are usually considered a vintage rarity nowadays. Solid brass and copper, mild steel and veg-tanned leather are main components that we use to create our goods. 

Aesthetics
Our goal is to create an appealing appearance and usability, fused together in a single form. We strive to get to a place where the authenticity of the materials and the manufacturing methods are maxed out.

Inspiration
Oftentimes, we draw our inspiration from getting back to the days of interwar-period, the Industrial revolution period and other historical themes of the 20th century beginning. We derive a lot from apocryphal sources like alternative history literature and cinema, as well as from actual historical sources.

Background
I was working with metal and leather since the age 17, being a young and an impassioned historical reenactor. In year 2009 I've created my first pair of Steampunk brass goggles. From then on, the making process flowed and lead me to becoming a totally self-taught and full time job leather worker. My wife joined me a couple of years ago, past architect and interior designer, she submerged into the process with me.
Originally, the workshop was established in Israel. Now, our studio is located in a small rural town near Moscow, Russia. Isolated from the noisy modern atmosphere, where we can create 24/7 and hope that we will have the chance and the time to carry out all our ideas.
 
Or in other words
Making goggles for a living since 2005.
