Douglas and Co. handcrafting leather goods in Detroit

- A new shop in Detroit is handcrafting luxury handbags.

Melissa Douglas, a 25 year old entrepreneur, makes these fine leather goods with her husband, Shane, out of a little studio in Detroit's North End Neighborhood. 

In 2014, the couple started to design and bags, totes, clutches and wallets, hand-crafted, from fine leather. Their dreams of opening a new workshop and store finally became real in August of 2016.

Their workshop and store is open now, and is located at 609 E Milwaukee Street, in the garage of the former Peerless Machine Weighing Co. Prices range from just $8 to $220.
