Next time you are putting on your favorite piece of clothing, check out where it is made from. Most likely it will say China. I was watching ABC news the other night and there was a piece that caught my attention regarding how the souvenirs sold in the Smithsonian are anywhere but American along with the majority of the nations purchases and how that is a big reason we are lacking jobs in the country. Where am I going with this? Rag and Bone, has been one of my favorite go to designers since they launched in 2002 and whenever possible Rag& Bone produces the majority of their garments in U.S. factories that still sew clothes the same way they did 50 years ago. Named after the English “rag and bone” man who collects unwanted items, Brit transplants Marcus Wainwright and David Neville formed their label in New York because they couldn’t’ seem to find a decent pair of jeans. They taught themselves the craft while visiting the now-closed Kentucky Apparel in Kentucky—the factory that produced their first jeans line. Today the brand has grown to include children’s clothes, accessories, and shoes in its own West Village stand-alone shop, not to mention a 2007 CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear.
