The “Detroit Grit + Grind” Corktown Coasters - Set of 2

Steel Grey w/ Lions Blue Accent Edge

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

Each “Detroit Grit & Grind” Corktown Coaster set comes with 2 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 and then screen print our logo on thr rear of each coaster.  We then proudly hand-emboss the Detroit Grit + Grind logo on each coaster. Options include edge painted and classic cork edge. 

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.
