Made in America: What it Really Means
Inspired by our nation's b-day and a desire to promote local industry — buying goods from the 50 states boosts employment and the economy — we took a closer look at the exact meaning of "USA-made." As it turns out, making a patriotic purchase isn't always easy as (apple) pie.
Our goal? To feature items made in the U.S. with all-American materials. But in a global economy, that's tough — many raw materials used here are imported. The compromise: While materials could come from abroad, assembly had to happen in the U.S.
Bedding posed a unique problem: Nearly all affordable sheets sold here — particularly in saturated colors — are sewn overseas. Mindful of cost ($500 or more for a queen-size set seemed excessive), we chose sheets produced in India from cotton grown in the U.S.
The Fine Print
Finding "made-in-America" items can be tricky (the Federal Trade Commission regulates the claim, and its guidelines run to 40 pages), but heritage brands like Pendleton and Simon Pearce are safe bets. Also solid: Etsy, with its artisanal emphasis, and local-to-you craftspeople and companies.
