Bal Harbour, FL (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Much interest and talk has revolved around the recent controversy surrounding the U.S. Olympic Team Uniforms, which were made in China. The question of whether to burn them or wear them went viral in blogs and news agencies across the country after U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) responded negatively to a news report that the uniforms designed by Ralph Lauren were made in China. This brings many to question “What’s made in America anymore?”
Although much of today’s manufacturing is outsourced, true American fashion still does, in fact, exist. Take the “American West”, for instance. There is something to be said about the lure of the American West, with its cowboys, silversmiths and a bit of a bravado attitude. But the real heritage is seen in its artists and artisans who continue to produce quality hand-made products one can proudly say are “made in America”.
Retailer J.W. Cooper hand-selects merchandise from these true American artists—some are the country’s oldest and most respected silversmiths. They are the ones who produce hard-to-find handmade items such as buckles carved out of mother of pearl, gold, silver, bronze, and even mammoth ivory. The designs are not old-fashioned cowboy wear, either. J.W. Cooper carries the latest contemporary designs where even the smallest detail is meticulously crafted and can be paired with that Bulgari or Cartier watch.
True American fashion can be found, if you look for it. Walk into a J.W. Cooper store, or browse their web store, and you’ll be surrounded by it. Ninety-eight percent of the items sold in their stores are made in the U.S. The unique offerings are what make their customers say “wow”, but what really makes them proud is that they are uniquely made in the United States.
