Looking For Made In USA Children Clothes



Wife doesn't believe that children clothes are made in the U.S.A.(ages 2-5)

She finally is appalled at the deaths of those factory workers in Bangladesh. I had to tell her what if it was our granddaughter who died...she asked me where in the USA can you buy clothes made here for our 3 YO granddaughter.. I told her you have to not go to Walmart and go DOWNTOWN.


If you have links I would appreciate you posting them here.

12. I direct everybody to the Made in America store.

If it's made in America, they sell it. If it ain't made in America, you're SoL.

5. Thrift or consignment store.

You can find cheap, good quality clothes at your local thrift store. Or Craigslist. Can save you a ton as children grow so fast.

It's very hard to find made in USA children's clothes. Buying second hand at least means that you are not putting money into the pockets of those who exploit workers. And your money will stay within your community.

This is what we do for our son.

6. Try Etsy or eBay

Lots of moms who sew cute clothes for extra money. Don't worry - most of the clothing is not the same level of sewing that our moms/grandmothers did when they sewed children's clothing. These are much cuter.

7. Web search for the site "MadeINUSAForever". I features a variety of products for women

men and children. Once on the site, do a search for the items that you are interested in. Companies are vetted by the site's founder, so you don't have to worry about a "Union Made" fiasco. The item may be pricier because the manufacturers of the american made stuff can't rely on a Macy's Sears, or Penny's promising to buy 5 million units before one unit is made.

14. A Mom small biz start-up in NC, from 1 to 100 employees


Where textiles were king in NC but now the state is left with abandoned mills, this Mom of 4 started making clothes at home and now employs 100 others in her clothes-making business.
