      Perfectly Imperfect:

      Every Pingree bag is slightly different. Why? The leather that we use is of the highest genuine grade and has imperfections that tell an authentic story. Small scratches and marks on the leather's surface are normal and will help the bag patina and age nicely. Texture and shade of leather may vary slightly from those pictured. 

        The Leather Story:

        Every day thousands of pounds of leather from brand new cars go unused for reasons as simple as color issues and small marks. We give this material a new life by transforming it into high quality leather products that are sustainable and handmade to last.

        Designed by Meg Harris, one of our worker-owners, with our most premium leather upcycled from the top car companies in the USA, and other local partners, and handmade in Detroit by US Veterans and Detroiters.
