Hugrz: Made in America

Posted on: August 1st, 2012 by Hugrz

Despite the “Olympic Wardrobe Malfunction of 2012” –  American-made apparel is not dead.   In fact, there is a RETURN of manufacturing to the USA, and strong speculation that we could be on the cusp of  revival of “Made in America,” with workers paid good wages for building things again. The gap between the cost to produce goods in the United States or to produce them abroad has narrowed, thanks to a decrease in China’s competitive advantage. Products such as your very own Hugrz boot wraps are made right here in the USA — in the hard hit manufacturing sector of Michigan to be exact! Hugrz are one of the growing list of popular fashion brands are made here.  There are over 50 exhibiting at the MAGIC trade show this month, including American Apparel, N.Y.L.A., and Red Engine Jeans. What do you think about this new trend? Are you more likely to buy clothing that is made in our country? Vote and comment Below!
