Named for Impact:
The Whittier, was named after abolitionist, poet and quaker, John Greenleaf Whittier. Many in Detroit know this as a street named Whittier, and the Whittier Hotel - few know about the tremendous legacy of this abolitionist who lived to serve all people and did so as a founding member of the American Anti-Slavery Society who signed the Anti-Slavery Declaration of 1833. We celebrate the courage of all people who stand up for what’s right no matter the cost, with our Whittier wallet. 


The leather used on your wallet will have a texture and shade of color that may vary slightly from the leather pictured and may exhibit natural imperfections since your wallet is crafted with small batch leather reclaimed from the production of new cars.

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.

great job on the website

great job on the website. quick and easy to use. Keep up the excellent work! One of the two Whittier wallets I ordered is going to Columbus Ohio to someone whose aunt lived at the Whittier for most of her adult life. Thanks for helping me spread Detroit love ...

That's amazing! We so appreciate your support and giving the gift of impact. :) We just heard from another customer yesterday who grew up in Whittier, CA.

We are so lucky to be in community with you and thank you so much for being the difference for our team and mission.

for your order
problem with ordering.

Somehow the website would not show both colors of the wallet I just bought. I had wanted the one with the one lighter color - but couldn't get the order to change to that style. So I just bought the one with the darker color. I love your products and especially love how you make them! Awesome - please continue the excellent work.

Sorry about that. We sold out of that color in minutes after it went live and just got inventory back in stock. Please let us know if you'd like to exchange it for the lighter color and we'd be happy to arrnage that for you. Email Team@Pingreedetroit.com and we'll cover the cost to ship it back to us.
