My Top 21 "Made in USA" Products

Thank you for checking out my list of my favorite products made in the USA. If you haven't already read it, you can check out my blog post explaining the main reasons why I try to buy things as locally as possible.


I also want to note that some of the items on this list are a bit more expensive than the cheaper, mass-produced version you've seen at Target or TJ Maxx. And I get it. I like to save money too and find good deals whenever I can! I didn't just go out and buy all of these things at once...it was over many years. Just remember that you're paying a little more on the front end for a better made product that will last longer. You can always search on Poshmark for some of these brands to see what's available for less money. I find most of my Carbon38 leggings on there!


This list includes a variety of products so I'll break them into two categories:

  1. Clothing & Shoes

  2. Home Goods & Furniture

Anywayz, here are my favorite companies that make 100% of their products right here in the USA! Check them out! Support them! Buy a little somethin' somethin'! Oh, and I should say that none of these companies have given me free product or paid me to write about them. I just really like 'em and want to celebrate the work they do.



CLOTHING AND SHOES



#1 | The Vermont Flannel Company

Made in Woodstock, Vermont

One of my favorite traditions growing up was having matching Christmas pajamas...thank you, Momma! After Josh and I got married, I wanted to continue this tradition in my own home with locally made PJs that we could wear all season long...and that would last a lifetime! That's how I found The Vermont Flannel Company. This family-owned business has been churning out lovingly made flannel for 30+ years. Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: Night Shirt ($63)


We've enjoyed our Vermont Flannel pajamas for 6 winters so far and they're still as fresh as ever!

#2 | Los Angeles Apparel

Made in Los Angeles, California

I had the chance to visit LA Apparel's factory a few months ago and gosh, I just love them so much. They pay their workers a living wage. They don't waste fabric. They make classic pieces that I can easily mix and match every single day. They're located just 9 miles from my front door and I even had the chance to tour their factory and meet their CEO Dov Charney at a recent sample sale. Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: The Valley A-Line Skirt ($50)


Here I am with CEO Dov Charney at the LA Apparel factory in downtown Los Angeles. I'm wearing their clothes from head to toe! Everything is made just 10 miles from my house.




#3 | NIKIBIKI

Made in Los Angeles, California


Buying local doesn't have to be expensive. I love the unique, stretchy fabrics they use on their tank tops, crop tops and dresses. It's one of my favorites to wear on a date night, because it's stretchy, fun and a bit sexy. And believe it or not, this $25 piece elicited a much stronger reaction from my husband than my $1,000 wedding dress (HAHAHA). Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: Women's Seamless Ribbed Midi Dress in Pink ($25)


Celebrating our 6th Anniversary at one of our favorite restaurants, Baltaire. This little pink dress is SO FUN to wear!

#4 | Robeworks

Made in Los Angeles, California

I've been a bridesmaid 10 times, so I've deeeefinitely picked up quite a collection of robes over the years. Sadly, they lose their luster after a few seasons of wear. That's why I did a little research and saved up for a robe from Robeworks, which makes their soft, luxurious robes right here in downtown Los Angeles and are meant to last for ages! Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: The Essential Luxury Spa Robe ($124)



#5 | North Star Trading

Made in Whidbey Island, Washington

Handmade slippers are a tough one to find, but I was excited to discover this family-owned company based on a small island off of Washington state. Since 1967, they've been making little pillow forts for your feet. They're expensive, but these will keep me cozy until kingdom come and I have 0 plans to buy new slippers. Currently wearing them whilst I type this post. Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: The Scoot Slipper ($130)



#6 | Palm Beach Sandals

Made in West Palm Beach, Florida

It's hard to find shoes made locally for less than $150. And when I get frustrated by that, I ask myself...how much would someone have to pay ME to make them a pair of shoes? <end of complaining> Anyways, this small company based in West Palm Beach makes gorgeous, classic and comfortable sandals that will last longer than any Jack Rogers. I haven't bought a single new pair of flip flops or sandals for 5 years and they still feel brand new! Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: The Classic Palm Beach Sandal ($158)



#7 | Maggie's Organics

Made in Haw River, North Carolina

I found this brand when I was visiting a crunchy grocery store in Northern California and just fell in love. They've been knitting these bebes since 1990s at a mill in North Carolina. Maggie's is one of the most transparent clothing companies I've ever come across. For example, all of the cotton used in all of Maggie’s socks is ginned at a 100% worker-owned cooperative that is run by the farmer co-ops. And lastly, their socks are perfectly cushioned but still work great with my everyday sneakers. Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: Organic Cotton Footie Socks ($8)


#8 | Carbon38

Made in Los Angeles, California

One of my friends won a pair of Carbon38's signature shiny leggings in a fitness contest and when I tried hers on, I was hooked. They're made in downtown Los Angeles and can be paired with a matching bra for the cutest and most conscious workout set around. I know they're expensive at $118 a pop, so instead of buying 4 poorly made pairs for $30 each - save up and buy just one that will outlive the others. I haven't bought new leggings for 5+ years so that's just $20 per year of wear. Check it out here.


My Favorite Product: High-Rise 7/8 Leggings in Takara Shine ($118)


This is one of my favorite matching sets from Carbon38. Here I am running around Brooklyn with my sister. The scrunchie is from The Vermont Flannel Company and the sunglasses are secondhand from my brother.

#9 | The Greeley Hat Company

Made in Greeley, Colorado

I haven't written a blog post in a really long time, but it was my grandmother who encouraged me to start back up again. She also said I had to include The Greeley Hat Company in my "Made in USA" list because she just ordered an amazing hat from them after seeing them featured on one of her favorite shows Yellowstone. Since 1909, every hat has been handmade in Colorado for cowgirls and city slickers alike. It sure looks gorgeous on my Dede! Check them out here!


My Grandmother's Favorite Product: Yellowstone John Dutton ($250+)


I've always admired my grandmother's bold fashion statements. Dede has a love for traditional Western style jewelry, textiles, prints and hats like this one!

#10 | Stop Staring!

Made in Los Angeles, California


I've worn this spunky jumpsuit dozens of times over the years, which can be dressed up with a pair of pumps or dressed down with a denim jacket! It's inspired by vintage pin-up fashion, but has a fresh, modern edge to it. For 20+ years, this woman-owned business has been making classic pieces. Check them out here.


My Favorite Product: Rockabilly 1950s Riley Jumpsuit in Red ($175)
