The husband and wife team of Melissa and Shane Douglas founded Douglas & Co. in Detroit. They drink coffee with coconut oil, raw milk and butter for breakfast. They also make beautifully crafted leather products in small production quantities. They see their joint endeavor as an experiment in growth and learning. Their favorite green space in Detroit is the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory at Belle Isle. They design products for people who love the elegance of simplicity. They see a positive impact in the people who have persevered through hardships in Detroit as well as newcomers to the city who are creating community and movements. Drop by Nora and get a taste of their work.
Melissa and Shane will be hosting a Meet the Artist Event on November 4 from 5pm-7pm at Nora.
