When car seats are turned into coasters, your drink always has the best seat in the house. 

Each Corktown Coaster set comes with 4 coasters handmade in Detroit by our team of Veterans and Detroiters, with leather upcycled from the American auto industry. We unite this durable leather with cork crafted from leftover wine bottles and upcycled natural rubber.  We then proudly hand-emboss our logo on each coaster.
It’s a great gift that smells like a new car -- because it nearly was!

Story behind the Name: “Corktown” is not only one of the oldest neighborhoods in Detroit but is one of the first places where a “Pingree potato patch” popped up. Detroit Mayor Hazen Pingree gave 430 acres of land and seeds to Detroiters to grow their own food during the nationwide depression of 1893.  We honor his commitment to service above self with these coasters.

Your coaster is crafted with small batch leather reclaimed from the production of new cars. So, your Corktown Coasters may have a texture and shade that varies slightly from the leather pictured.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Q: When will my order ship?
A: Since the majority of our products are made to order, we try our hardest to ensure orders ship quickly. Most accessories ship within 3-5 business days after the order being placed. If the product is made to order- you'll see the estimated days needed to make your handmade piece in bold on that respective product page. Footwear will ship based on the month included on the receipt emailed to you and the name in the Title when you checked out. 

Q: What kind of leather is used in Pingree Detroit products?
A: We use only the finest automotive leather in our products, all upcycled, which we source from the Detroit auto industry. 

Q: Is the leather Waterproof?
A: The automotive leather used in our products is mostly steering wheel and car seat leather so it's extremely durable and resilient. Most of our products are water resilient, meaning the product won't get damaged when it gets wet, but it's not waterproof unless we specify in the product title or description. 

Q: What is your product guarantee?

A: We want you to be happy, and tell your friends, family, and co-workers about your Piece of Pingree a decade from now how well it's still holding up, so we will stand by our product for life. If the stitching or any hardware fails on one of our products within 365 days of the product arriving to you, we cover the cost of getting it shipped back to us to repair and shipping it back to you at no extra cost. After the warranty, for the Life of Your Product, if anything breaks on it from normal use( please don't use our dog leashes to lift engines out of cars--even though they can hold it) - all you pay is the labor it costs us to repair it and the shipping expense. 


Pingree Detroit footwear is currently only available standard widths. Email us at with questions about other sizes as we are working on adding E-EEE widths for some common sizes.

Pingree Detroit footwear is "true to size", meaning that they are based on the sizes of athletic footwear, like tennis shoes. Order the size that you would normally use for athletic footwear. We then send our footwear customers tracing instruction to ensure a perfect fit.

Susan Sincissen A great place to shop. A great place to shop for leather goods. Many things to choose from. I very much appreciate the "reduce, reuse, recycle" philosophy. First purchase was the set of four Corktown coasters = four different colors and well-made. Would be a nice gift for someone. Second purchase just made is the computer mouse pad = have not yet received, but I know it will be up to my expectations and beyond! The website is easy to use with lots of great pictures of the many items and very detailed descriptions of them. I know what I will receive before making a purchase. Check out this website. You will be impressed!

You just made our day. So happy you like your Corktown Coasters and excited to get you your Motor City Mouse Pad very soon! Thanks for being the difference Susan.
