Made in the USA

IMG_0327While it’s very hard to find brands that make some product in America, it’s almost completely obscure to find ones in which all the products offered are made in America. It’s near impossible to wear 100% clothes that are made in America, however, I very much appreciate those who still do. While there are many benefits that help our nation’s economy, the quality of the products are kept high because the standards don’t allow them to cut corners. See my favorite “Made in America” brands below:made in usa

LL Bean: While most items are not completely made in America, their Bean Boots, Boat and Tote bags, and many home goods are. They are upfront with which items are made in America that you can find here.

Modcloth: Again, most items are not made in America, but they offer items that are and are upfront with what those items are.

Kiel James Patrick: A company that says “Made in the USA” right on it, and it stays true to that. 100% of what you find is handmade in America, and I appreciate that they keep that high standard.

Woolrich: Again, they have certain products that are made in America that you can find at the top of their page on a drop down menu.

Great Lakes Clothing Co.: A wonderful company committed to 100% of their products being made in America. You can find out why they chose to keep their products made in America here (it’s worth a look), and make sure to check out their products for items that are perfect for an all-American summer.

Etsy: You can find many items that are made in America whether they are handmade, or a vintage item that comes from a time where it was common for items to be made in America.

DISCLAIMER: While owning items made in America is great, that doesn’t mean you can’t find quality products that are made elsewhere. Many times companies who outsource get flack for lower worker wages and conditions, but there are still some who go the extra mile to make sure their labor meets fair conditions.

    Loft is another co that even tho they aren’t made in America ( made in Philippines ), they provide good working conditions and help women become independent. I work there and just recently saw a video of all the women they help thanking Ann Taylor! It was so moving! 🙂 great article!

      Exactly! It’s not always bad to outsource, many companies are careful about treating their employees well here and overseas.
