Willow Run Trifold Wallet

$44.00
Mahogany

As sleek and slim as a well-designed aircraft.

Our Willow Run wallet is crafted with buttery soft, upcycled automotive steering wheel leather. It’s not only durable, it takes on a magnificent patina with use and age. Much like the Greatest Generation, who inspired it.

Our minimalist take on a classic style tri-fold wallet includes three card slots that each hold 4-5 cards. Suede lined cash pouch. Hand edge painted and embossed with the Pingree Detroit logo for a wallet as dynamic as the place it was named after.

OUR PURPOSE



Why the Name: The "Willow Run" Airport story

Some say Willow Run won the war. During World War II, few accomplished what the Willow Run factory in Ypsilanti, Michigan was able to do in such a short and critical time.  Albert Kahn designed the first bomber assembly plant of its kind, which was built by the Ford Motor Company in 1940. Nearly 8,700 B-24 Liberator airplanes were made here, one every 63 minutes. And during its peak production, Willow Run (aka the Arsenal of Democracy) employed 42,000 people including "Rosie the Riveter.” In fact, one third of the workforce was female!  

As a team of veterans and Detroiters who live not far from this iconic place, we're proud to celebrate the people and hard work that both served and lifted this country.

 

*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.

2nd Gen wallet

When my teenage son showed me his wallet, I shook my head. It was the same one he had since 5th grade. Multi-colored nylon, Velcro closure, with his name largely printed on it. Yes, time for an upgrade. I loved my own Willow Run Trifold Wallet so much; I knew it would be my gift choice for him. Simple design, using high quality, recycled automotive leather, made by Vets in Detroit. Who wouldn't want one?

Great new wallet

Just received my new wallet from Pingree Detroit and wanted to give them a shout out. Based in Detroit with all products produced from reclaimed/post-industrial scrap leather from the automotive industry; and designed and handmade by local Detroit citizens, including veterans. Really impressed with the whole customer experience from start to finish- topped off by a hand-written thank you note- plus a card from the employee who crafted it. On top of it, prices were very competitive. Highly recommend!

Well worth the money

Treated myself to a new wallet after having my last one for about 12 years. This is a top quality piece. Another great product from The Motor City.
