Made in America
Saturday, 1 November 2014 – Saturday, 17 January 2015
The Ackland Museum Store is proud to present Made in America, a curated market of goods designed and manufactured in the United States. The market features eleven companies who have been manufacturing for fifty years or more in the United States. Some of these companies have been in business for over one hundred years and a few have been rescued from the brink of closure by investors who wanted to see their rich traditions continued. These are all companies who have consistently made products, mostly utilitarian in nature, with a timeless and enduring quality. They are true examples of American design, materials, and manufacturing.
With Made in America, we celebrate the work of individuals and small business owners–the artists, the makers, and the innovators. We’d love to share with you the remarkable stories of the people and the places behind the products in Made in America. They enforce our belief in American products which are designed and crafted well.
The companies of “Made in America” include Amac Plastic, Petaluma, CA (since 1960); Cone Mills, Greensboro, NC (since 1905); Duluth Pack, Duluth, MN (since 1882); Faribault Woolen Mill, Faribault, MN (since 1865); Fox River Mills, Osage, IA (since 1900); Louisville Stoneware, Louisville, KY (since 1815); Mosser Glass, Cambridge, OH (since 1954); Ohio Stoneware, Zanesville, OH (since 1900); Peterboro Basket Company, Peterborough, NH (since 1841); Steele Canvas Basket, Chelsea, MA (since 1921); and Stormy Kromer, Ironwood, MI (since 1903).
