It's September 11, 2015 and today we are reflecting on America, being American, and our memories of that day and the days that followed. Those vivid memories are constant reminders of why it's so important to support Americans and their American businesses. United we are all stronger, and we must continue to build strong Americans and strong, successful American brands. At oomph, we are very proud to say that our products are 100% Made in America by American craftsmen. There is an endless number of amazing American made companies. Some have been around forever, and some are just getting started. With new platforms like Etsy and Instagram taking over the world, it has become so much easier for small brands to showcase their products and for us to find them! Lucky Us! Since 2012 American Icon, Martha Stewart, has celebrated and put the spot light on a variety of American brands across numerous categories from apparel to food, home decor to cosmetics. A select number of these brands are recognized for their exceptional products and community building in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards each year. The Made in America or Made in the U.S.A. stamp have become synonymous with high-quality, high-integrity products. We have found that it's an incredibly important piece of our message to customer. Designers and their clients are more than willing to pay a little extra to know that their new piece was hand-made in a factory here in Connecticut, versus having travelled across the world. I'm sure that many of our peer companies in design would say the same thing: Schoolhouse Electric, Tillett's Textiles, The New Traditionalists, Reprotique, Simon Pearce, just to name a few.
SIMON PEARCE REPROTIQUEOther brands we love and are truly American made include J.Press, New Balance, L.L Bean, Filson, Clarke's Botanicals, and Jason Wu.
And of course, we cannot forget all those amazing Wineries
and Distilleries throughout the Country!!!
BULLY BOY DISTILLERIESDid you know that all of these brands are 100% Made in America?! Pretty impressive, don't you think?
