We took a trip to visit our manufacturing partners in North Carolina in late May 2022.

We pride ourselves on telling the story of American manufacturing - and every trip to the Hickory region allows us to reflect on that mission.

That story we speak of so often is still being spun in Hickory, North Carolina, a region of the country where woodworking, knitting, and other trades are the axis around which the local economy spins.

It’s a place where people build their lives around physically making something.
