For years, we have watched American manufacturing jobs move overseas, as retailers capitalized on a greater profit margin due to bare minimum wages paid to workers who assemble their finished goods.

We hope to lead the retail industry in bringing manufacturing jobs back to the US and drive down the cost of American manufactured goods to our consumers. While many designers have already begun implementing this process, it is up to retailers to use their storefronts as a forum for educating consumers on the importance of this initiative.
