A Mission of Service

Every company or organization could benefit from the discipline and mission driven nature of those who have served. Our company exists to make neighborhoods across this country stronger by maximizing well-being for our workforce, our customers and the underserved in our communities. Veterans are uniquely equipped to tackle a mission as large as ours so we seek out opportunities to train and hire them. 

We are a worker owned company and create community rooted wealth by sharing 77% of profits our company makes with the veterans and Detroiters on our team. Every maker on our team has opportunities to learn skilled trades in shoe making, leather crafting, design, advanced manufacturing, and entrepreneurship.

 Purpose is everything. We operate with discipline, focus, and a commitment to serve our communities and families. Each piece we craft has character and purpose. Just like the place where it's made and people who make it.

We are all in this together and thank you for being part of our efforts to not only pay a living wage but to reimagine what it means to wage a living.
