In the last few years, the term “Made in the USA” has taken on new meaning as the traditional sense of national pride has become synonymous with classic, handcrafted goods. Brands you haven’t heard from in ages, like Pendleton, Red Wing Shoes and Filson, are being revived to their former glory. New, artisan brands, such as The Hill-Side, Raleigh Denim and Sanborn Canoe Co., are emerging to a receptive audience.
An emphasis on quality, craft and a heritage aesthetic pervade this wide array of product offerings, and consumers young and old are craving these artisan touches.
Communities across the United States are cropping up to support their local makers. National pop-up market Northern Grade, features a select group of local brands at each of their sales. And retailers such as J.Crew and West Elm are promoting similar brands as well. Discover them wherever you shop.
