REBORN FROM DETROIT
Born of Detroit’s renaissance, each piece is engraved with the address of the building from which the raw materials were salvaged. Each run is limited. Once the wood from a salvaged building is gone, that address is no longer available. With our Detroit-based partner, Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit (ASWD), we salvage wood from blighted homes slated for demolition. ASWD reclaims 90% of the materials from these properties, keeping value and jobs in Detroit.
The wood is kiln dried and handcrafted in Detroit into high-fidelity speakers—literally Made From Detroit™. Each piece arrives with a letterpress address card describing the Made From Detroit™ concept and featuring the address of your piece, as well as a letterpress maker card proudly signed by the craftsman of your piece.
