Long ago, in the early 1900's, Minneapolis, Minnesota was criss-crossed with streetcar lines. Owned by the Twin City Rapid Transit Company, these lines extended over the most of the metro area and were considered by many to be the finest system in the United States.

In the 50's, pressure from the automobile, Wall Street speculation, and fraud and malfeasance drove the streetcar company under. The lines were torn up, and the streetcars were sold off, or burned.

Here's a map of those streetcar lines, when public transit was truly public - before the automobile became king, before the buses rode over the now empty tracks.

Long live Progress!

Every Twig Case is made from Paper, & Stronger than Wood cases!

Save a Tree! Buy a Twig!

The Twig Case is made from trees, but stronger than wood! Our exclusive layered paper called Richlite is fused under tons of pressure, locking the fibers together with a eco-friendly resin. This process makes our cases stronger than any plain wood or wood veneer case. Our hard paper surface is far more dense than wood, so we engrave at double the resolution, and get stronger, more detailed, more durable engravings than wood can handle! Best of all, Twig Case Co. only uses sustainably sourced materials - there's no chance of an endangered tree from a national park, or illegally logged wood being used in your case! Find out how Twig's paper case is better than wood on our FAQ page!
