The start of Bosswik

Bosswik is founded in 1989 by Morten Levorsen, second generation of belt makers.

Based on Morten’s assesment of the assortment of leather belts in clothing shops in the nearby city, he finds the quality too poor and the price too expensive. He decides that he can do better himself.

More than a workshop

A single order of 11,000 belts propels Bosswik towards industrialized craftsmanship. Making less than 100 belts per day at the time, this order makes it possible to introduce the first specialized belt machines – a few of these machines are still found in the factory today.

The belt production moves out of the confines of the initial address making room for new machines and scaling up the production even further.
