Independence Day reminds us of how proud we are to be American. It’s more than the barbecues and fireworks; it’s the pride in our accomplishments, our skills, and our principles. Ironically enough, many of the things that we own aren’t made in this country. Take a look at the shirt you’re wearing or the chair you’re sitting on. Do you know where they are from or how they were made? At Lands’ End, it’s no secret. While access to imports is one of the amazing things about this country, there are a lot of resources right here on our own soil. Lands’ End has done an unbelievable job of utilizing our own resources. Whenever possible, they work with reputable manufacturers and skilled artisans in the U.S.A. who can meet their rigorous standards for quality and value.
Lands’ End Durable Goods line is American-made, from start to finish. The garments are designed in Lands’ End headquarters, located in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. The materials are also grown on American soil, with the finest cotton from Texas. In California factories, the merchandise is brought to life. Every single item is reviewed in their Quality Inspection Area to ensure perfection.
“We’re proud of our company’s American heritage – from our Wisconsin-based headquarters to the merchandise we offer that is made in the U.S.A. While the Durable Goods Collection is a small beginning, we are excited to offer quality ‘Made in the U.S.A‘ apparel for our customers. We are working on making even more products in America as we identify new domestic manufacturing facilities that can meet our quality and environmental standards. As always, we are committed to offering our customers the best products at a great value. Guaranteed. Period.” –Chris Kolbe, Brand President.
Lands’ End was looking to create the perfect Adirondack chair, so they teamed up with a company who has been crafting chairs in the Adirondack region for 35 years. Each chair is made with hand-selected red maple sourced from sustainably managed local forests. The wood is kiln-dried to a moisture content between 6 and 8 percent — the optimal level for working wood — and during production the shop is kept at a constant relative humidity to keep the wood stable. Each piece of the final chair is carefully milled, then primed and painted three times — with sanding between each step for unsurpassed smoothness. This chair is perfect for reading your favorite book while sipping lemonade on a hot summer day. It’s comfortable, built to last, and has even been featured on the Today Show!
American pride is about more than just hanging up a flag on your porch.
