Why Buy American?

Now more than ever, you have a wide array of choices when it comes to what you buy.  Choosing products ‘Made in the USA’ isn't just a patriotic gesture; it's a decision that offers a whole sea of benefits. More than just a purchase; it's a choice that resonates with quality, sustainability, close collaboration, community support, and ethical standards. 

1. Unparalleled Quality

When you opt for products made in the USA, you're investing in superior quality. American manufacturers adhere to more stringent quality standards, ensuring that every item that leaves their factories is built to last longer.  Longer lasting clothes means you get to wear them for longer and get more bang for your buck.  The excellent quality and expert craftmanship that America is known for make our products top notch.

2. More Sustainable

Choosing products made in the USA supports eco-friendly practices and reduces your carbon footprint. Domestic manufacturers often prioritize sustainable production methods, minimizing environmental impact and abiding by city and state environmental regulations. By purchasing locally-made goods, you're contributing to the reduction of unnecessary carbon emissions associated with shipping containers of clothes around the world.   Many brands that tote themselves as “sustainable” neglect to mention that they are produced in foreign countries with poor environmental laws that use dangerous, heavily polluting production processes.  When you purchase ‘Made in the USA’ products, know that you’re helping keep our planet clean for future generations.

3. Closer Collaboration

One significant advantage of buying Made in the USA products is the ability to work closely with manufacturers. Close collaboration allows for quicker feedback that makes sure needs are met and expectations exceeded.  Being able to go see a factory to make sure the working conditions are top notch, seeing the sustainable way that the clothes are made, and being able to create a relationship helps the end product that ends up at the customer’s front door the highest quality possible.

4. Supporting Local Communities

Every purchase you make contributes to the prosperity of local communities around the USA. By supporting local industries, you're actively participating in the betterment of your own neighborhood, ensuring a vibrant local economy where businesses thrive and communities flourish.  Jobs that move overseas almost never return, and when you buy Made in the USA you help keep your neighbors employed.

5. Ethical Working Conditions

American-made products are synonymous with ethical manufacturing practices. Labor laws and regulations in the USA are designed to protect workers' rights, ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, and reasonable working hours. When you choose products made in the USA, you can be confident that you're endorsing ethical employment practices, promoting dignity and fairness for the individuals who craft the items you cherish.  Many foreign made products are made in countries with loose child labor laws and no minimum wage restrictions.  By employing US Citizens to help source and make our products, we can make sure that the conditions of the factories are safe and clean and guarantee that they are paid a living wage.


By choosing to buy Made in the USA products, you're not only acquiring exceptional goods but also actively contributing to a brighter, more sustainable future for local communities and the planet.
