Thousands of Detroit veterans are unemployed, while hundreds more are homeless. It was a problem that 30-year-old Jarret Alan Schlaff had no interest in simply complaining about — he wanted solutions.
Bag Canvas Idakoos Got Music Jazz Tote In January 2015, with the help of veterans and community members, Schlaff co-founded Pingree Detroit, a brand that offers tote bags and journals made from hemp and upcycled auto industry leather.
The brand employs three full-time veterans who work out of a Woodward Avenue workshop/training space. On average, the team handcrafts three to five tote bags a day using mostly donated equipment. Pingree Detroit will soon add unisex footwear to its product lineup.
After a year of working with Pingree Detroit, the veterans are invited to be co-owners of the brand with Schlaff.
Music Bag Got Jazz Tote Idakoos Canvas “We think that having everyone share in the success of our company is a powerful way to create ownership on every level imaginable,” he says.
The name pays homage to Hazen Pingree, a shoemaker who became Detroit’s mayor then Michigan’s governor. Schlaff says Pingree embodied the idea of service leadership and a commitment to community that he hopes to reflect.
