Shinola iPad mini journal_Colette_2013


Many of us are still looking for the perfect Christmas gifts, that’s why your favorite blog is feeding you everyday with a selection of gift ideas to make your friends and family happy. Let us then introduce a young quality brand: Shinola, a Detroit-based company dedicated to producing American-made products, including watches, bicycles, leather goods, journals, shoe polish, and even cola.

“The world thinks of Detroit as supercool right now because there’s a sense of grittiness and toughness, but there’s also a sense of excitement and optimism here,” says Daniel Caudill, Shinola’s creative director, who has overseen the opening of both Shinola boutiques—one in Detroit and the recently opened shop in N.Y.C.’s Tribeca. As a matter of fact, Shinola launched their collection in France in collaboration with Colette Paris. Check out our selection of their best leather goods below and add that on your list to your Santa before it’s too late!

See more pics after the jump and check out the website!
