Willow Run Trifold Wallet
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.
- 3 card pockets (each holding 4-5 credit cards)+ currency pocket
- Nappa leather upcycled from the production of automotive steering wheels
- Military-grade industrial thread
- Dimensions 2.75"x 4.25" x 0.5" closed
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.
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Q: When will my order ship?

If the product is made to order- you'll see the estimated days needed to make your handmade piece in bold on that respective product page. Footwear will ship based on the month included on the receipt emailed to you and the name in the Title when you checked out.
Q: What kind of leather is used in Pingree Detroit products?
A: We use only the finest automotive leather in our products, all upcycled, which we source from the Detroit auto industry.
Q: Is the leather Waterproof?
A: The automotive leather used in our products is mostly steering wheel and car seat leather so it's extremely durable and resilient. Most of our products are water resilient, meaning the product won't get damaged when it gets wet, but it's not waterproof unless we specify in the product title or description.
