As a buyer for our business, I’ve noticed an increasing number of manufacturers beginning to produce hotel supplies here in the USA.
I can’t tell you how refreshing this is. When I began purchasing goods for InnStyle 36 years ago, most of the textile manufacturers I used were based in the United States.
But as time passed, many manufacturers moved their operations to places like China, India and Pakistan, arguing that consumers wanted lower prices and the cost of goods and salaries in the U.S. were becoming prohibitive.
Recently, however, it seems like more consumers are asking for goods made here in America. Manufactures have long been aware of this, but faced a tricky situation: Once you’ve set up plants overseas, it’s hard to resume operations in the U.S.A.
But many of these manufacturers are beginning to come back, with others – aware of the demand for “Made in the USA” goods – opening new plants.
American-made products are being touted throughout the marketplace. You’ll see the “Made in the USA” label on manufacturers’ websites, or on the items themselves.
It’s something the White House has really begun promoting this year.. In July, they hosted companies in Washington D.C. for what was touted as the “Made in America Product Showcase.”
It was meant to celebrate every state’s commitment to produce American-made products, from Gibson guitars (Tennessee) to Campbells Soup (New Jersey) to Stetson hats (Texas).
At InnStyle, we’re trying to feature as many “Made in the USA” hotel supplies as we can, while continuing to look for products that fit your needs in terms of quality and price.
Some of these products include:
- 300 Cotton Sateen Sheets
- Sealy Posturepedic Egyptian Cotton Waterproof Mattress Pad
- Sealy Temperature Regulating Mattress Pad
- The Maine Heritage Weaver bedspread collection:
- Eco-Poly Neutral tray stand combos
If you don’t see a product or style that you like on our website, please contact our sales team. We will do our best to find the hotel supplies that are right for your property.
