Why the Name Kercheval? We named this key chain after Benjamin Kercheval (1793-1855), he was an officer in the War of 1812. He built a house on Field street( where our CEO lives and prototyped our first shoes). Kercheval operated the Detroit Glass Works and the Detroit Hoop Manufacturing Company. In 1865, he was instrumental in establishing the Michigan State Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and helped create state laws relating to the humane treatment of animals.He is credited with helping establish an art museum in Detroit, and helping establish public drinking fountains in Detroit in 1871.
