We are Fred & Gered Bowman - Twin Brothers and Product Designers from Cleveland, Ohio.
In 2015, we started our own Industrial design studio specializing in designing innovative products & meaningful brands. Always keeping up with the latest fashion trends, we noticed something that hadn't really changed, and that was the snapback hat.
After years of wearing the same hats, with simple embroidery, we wanted something more than just another cheap hat with our favorite team’s logo or a hat from an apparel brand that didn’t put any effort or thought into their headwear. We wanted something better, but it didn’t exist for us…so we decided to create it:
FORGE HEADWEAR - The first premium engraved metal headwear brand.
