I've always been interested in knowing where things are made—it is a fascination of mine. I'm especially passionate about things being made in the USA, since it seems so much manufacturing has been outsourced to other countries. Given the option, I would always choose items made in the US—even my clothes. I want to support the companies that make the effort to keep the manufacturing in the USA. Often I would be wearing at least one American made item, but along the way I became compelled to try and have a fully American made outfit (including socks, shoes and underwear!)
I continued to research and source American made clothing, accessories, shoes, etc. I found some really great options…some are even being made right here in San Francsico, which is very cool. I feel so passionate about supporting these efforts that I'm committing to buying only American made clothing going forward. I've been so energized and inspired by the process that I decided to start a new personal photo series of made-in-the-USA clothing and accessories. This photo showcases my first completely American made outfit. (Sources below)
