Bronze 56k was launched in New York City by Peter Sidlauskas and Pat Murray. Starting out in hardware they produced Bronze skate bolts and soon gave way to clothing as the brand quickly gained notoriety through lo-fi skate edits, featuring Windows 95 referenes and sales training videos. Their creativity referenced the iconography of the first wave of the internet with endless pop-up boxes, dial-up modems and bitmap graphics. Bronze brought the internet circa 1995 to the forefront of their design style.
Bronze is part of the new wave of refreshing skate brands that were born out of local crews with a heavy DIY attitude. Starting out making homie videos of the crew, then scraping together some t-shirt's, learning the ropes, building the blocks and organically growing the brand through demand and respect. They continue to push their original style and do an amazing job of representing modern skateboarding.
