Made in The United States used to mean something...and now in the dawn of a global economy, it means even more.
Did you know The Alley makes its own pewter jewelry, belt buckles, & more right here in Chicago? We only use lead-free pewter, unlike Chinese made buckles for half the price which contain lead. Vulcanized rubber molds are made for each design, and melted pewter is poured in to create the fabulous designs seen on the likes of The Big Bang Theory, & Sons of Anarchy hit television shows. Check out owner Mark Thomas' quick tour of how this all shakes down here at The Alley factory, located in the Avondale neighborhood; on the northwest side of Chicago.
