WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND AND THE STORY BEHIND WHY YOU STARTED STUDEBAKER METALS?
Studebaker Metals is a collaboration of a traditionally trained Metalsmith (Michael Studebaker) and a fashion marketing and design professional (Alyssa Catalano). After swiping right on each other's tinder profiles in 2013, they recognized the opportunity in marrying their skills (and later, each other) to found the company only a few months after meeting. It's been a wild adventure ever since.
