Pingree's Perfectly Imperfect "Goofs" Collection: Up to 50% off
All our goods are handmade in Detroit by our team of Veterans and Detroiters. All our goods have character and purpose, just like the people who made them. Sometimes, there is so much "character" - aesthetically - that we offer these 1 of 1 goods at a reduced price.
As the painter Bob Ross once said, "We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents"
FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $15.00
Some perfectly imperfect "goofs" you may see on your goods include but are not limited to:
- Stitching may be wavy when it's supposed to be straight
- Edge paint may cover up more leather than it should
- Small scuffs may be visible on the leather
- Wrong thread color
- Leather may have bug bites or scars
- Leather may have extra creases or other minor character imperfections
- Emboss of the logo may be slightly crooked
There may only be 1 per product at times so if it's out of stock- check back in a few weeks or shop all our classic goods without so much character.
How products become "Goofs": We hold high standards for quality, and sometimes, during training ( we provide free skilled trades training in sewing, leather crafting, and shoe making) or during our daily flow, some of our goods don't pass the quality control check because they have too much "character". These perfectly functional products, become 1 of 1's because of the "flaws" that make them unique.
Thanks for reimagining work with us and supporting us in our mission to be waste free.

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.
