Seen & Heard

Made in Detroit

I’m a Michigander. Proud to work in Detroit. And prouder yet of the blue collar spirit and manufacturing roots of this city. I see signs of spring sprouting everywhere downtown after our long, cold winter of disrespect and decline. From Campus Martius to Eastern Market,  Corktown, to Midtown, new businesses are starting and expanding, new restaurants are opening, and an unmistakable air of optimism is spreading. Few sum up this movement up better than a company called Shinola. These folks have had the audacity to start a manufacturing company in Detroit. Bicycles, watches and leather goods: Made in Detroit. Watch this video and you, too, will catch this spirit of optimism and a dash of can-do attitude to boot. It’s a great story, and great storytelling.
