Our story begins in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, along route 28. It starts with a family man that worked in the steel industry. After some time gaining experience, he ventured out on his own and began a business. He started making decorative metal ware products and selling them from his car. His success grew and eventually he built and opened his own foundry. Fast forward almost 50 years and 2 generations later, the business has grown to become one of the most successful gift and garden suppliers in the United States.
With new generations come new ideas. Tired of giving and receiving the same old gifts, we saw the opportunity to create a brand where we can connect with our customers on a more personal level. Carrying the same values our founder believed in, we wanted high quality products with exceptional design. That is how 28 Collective was born.
