Even if you've been looking forward to this day off work (for watermelon-tequila concoctions, or for the feeling of a cold shower after a hot day slathered in sunscreen) all spring, if you're celebrating Fourth of July you've also likely paused to feel a twinge of gratitude. Us, too.
Today, we wanted to celebrate a selection of our makers who do all their work on American soil. It can be expensive, to source local materials and fabricators, but it's pretty damn amazing when a small company commits to it. Here are eleven American makers—and a whole bunch of their made-in-the-USA designs—from our Shop:
Faribault Woolen Mill Co. (Minnesota)
Weekender Stripe Throw Pillow
Red House (Vermont)
Waxed Canvas Toiletries Pouch
Big Spoon Roasters (North Carolina)
Three Rays' Pottery (Washington)
Malfatti (New York)
Jono Pandolfi (New Jersey)
R. Murphy (Massachusetts)
Mosser Glass (Ohio)
Grey Swirl Glass Cake Stand
Steele Canvas Basket Corp. (Massachusetts)
Grey Narrow Elevated Laundry Basket
Peg & Awl (Pennsylvania)
Reclaimed Walnut Knife Grabber
We originally ran this roundup on Memorial Day, but brought it back for the 4th of July.
