Each Corktown Coaster is handmade in Detroit by our team of Veterans and Detroiters with leather upcycled from the American Auto Industry. We unite this durable automotive leather with cork crafted from leftover wine bottle corks.  We then hand-emboss our logo on each coaster. It’s a great gift that smells like a new car -- because it nearly was.

“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.

The leather used on your Corktown Coasters will have a texture and shade that may vary slightly from the leather pictured since your coaster is crafted with small batch leather reclaimed from the production of new cars).
