I’ve noticed some of the higher end shops seem to carry more made in North America products but you will pay for it. It’s like Canadian diamonds expect the price to double or triple. Linens can be really hard as well however if you can find a company online that sells even yardage and then have it sewn up or if you want really nice have a local weaver make something custom. Check local Fibre mills they should be a wealth of information. There is a mil near me who makes beautiful woven throws from local sheep’s fleece. Best of luck on your hunt. This isn’t quite as important to us however we understand since my FI was in manufacturing for years before we met.

Great article giving different housewares, made in USA, including dishes:

Interesting topic. People SHOULD have choices.

Made in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, etc., etc..  it all looks just as good as the stuff made in USA, England, Germany, etc., etc..  Why let a little mercury get in the way of profit margins?  Besides, most of it comes out in the smelting process anyway.

Oneida has a factory in Oneida, New York near Utica. It employs a good portion of the locals.

 

Whoops!! Did NOT realize this is a 5 year old thread. My mistake
