Many of our t-shirts are Bella Canvas brand, and it's a really interesting company. Almost the entire manufacturing process takes place in America. They design it here, dye it here, and cut it here. Then they either send the cut pieces to Central America for assembly, or they do some sewing and assembly in Los Angeles where they are based. The neck labels sometimes say assembled in Guatemala or Nicaragua of American components. This allows them to keep the garments at an affordable price, while continuing to invest in US jobs. Some Bella Canvas products are 100% US made, but the shirts we offer right now are assembled in Nicaragua.
Bella Canvas is the largest dyer and cutter of apparel in the US, and they create thousands of jobs in the US, AND they are eco and environmentally friendly, in addition to being super high quality. We think they are a great company.
Many of sweatshirts and hoodies are Gildan - that's a Canadian brand, and their factories are in Honduras and Haiti. They offer quality and value at a great price.
Right now our unisex twill hats are made in China, and you guessed it, that keeps the cost down. We will be testing other brands to see if we can't get a good US brand in to replace it
