Cool Hunting Video: Shinola Leather Factory

Continuing their quest to revive American manufacturing, the Detroit brand brings their leather work in-house

During a trip to Detroit’s Shinola headquarters, we got a first-hand look at its recently opened leather factory and design studio—another step in their continued quest to revive American manufacturing. The brand has commenced operations with the making of leather watch straps, right next door to where the popular watches are themselves constructed. This clever move for Shinola will help streamline their manufacturing across products, as well as open doors for more rapid design and production of other goods in the future.
