I was lucky enough to talk with a handful of the over 100 made in America suppliers showing at Capsule this weekend. Big apologies to those I missed or inadvertently passed! As many of these manufacturers heard me say, I believe the onus is on retailers to select conscious product. Consumers just want to buy nice products at a fair price.
- Retailers who support fair trade and local: Kisses to you and Thanks!
- Retailers who have an Open to Buy: Buy local, the selection available is wide!
- Consumers: buy it and demand it! Ask Shops where things are made and if your purchase is fair trade.
I selected just 10 of the brands I loved meeting this weekend...check 'em out, and buy their locally made clothing!
