Inkster non-profit upcycles automotive leather, helps women in need

Turning car seat headrests into purses and more

Every time I visit, there’s a new classroom, business or endeavor that is training women how to get into the workforce and lifting them out of poverty or potential poverty.

When my colleague, Christy McDonald mentioned this new purse venture, I had to take a look.
