The rugged apparel brand Carharrt has newly released a “Made in America Line”. This exciting news is part of a national movement to bring manufacturing, especially textiles, back to the USA. Currently, less than 2% of the clothing available for purchase in our country is actually made here.
A video released by Carharrt talks about the new line of products made in America, in which all all items are designed in Michigan and produced in their Tennessee and Kentucky plants, but also highlights the fact that, in the 123 years since Carharrt began, they have never stopped manufacturing here. Employees in the video note that one of the company’s mottos is “for the American worker” which it exemplifies by providing good jobs, including over 900 jobs to UFCW members. The overall idea expressed in the short film is that America was not made by men in suits behind a desk, but workers getting down and dirty to build our country.
