Pure Detroit

Pure Detroit

Map
500 Griswold Ave., Guardian Bldg., Ste. 250, Detroit, MI 48226, United States

Far cooler than the typical souvenir shop, Pure Detroit incorporates local products and the city’s automotive heritage into hip gifts and collectibles. Handbags and belts made from actual seat belts are hot items, followed closely by Pewabic tiles and stylish clothing. There’s also a great selection of Detroit photographs by local photographer Jan Kaulins. In addition to the Guardian Building location, there are two other downtown Pure Detroits, in the Fisher Building and the Renaissance Center.

 

Tip: A handbag made out of seat belts never wears out. Ever.
