Like the summer music event of the same name, The Made in America Project is definitely worth getting psyched about. (But, no, Jay Z has nothing to do with this one.) Los Angeles-based creatives and MiA's cofounders, Micha Thomas and Jaime Lawson, dreamed up the e-commerce site over coffee in 2012. The idea: Provide designers who have faced challenges and resisted pressure to outsource production with a digital platform to display their work.
Today, the shop is a reality, featuring a carefully curated selection of cool wares designed and manufactured in the U.S. It's a place to find garments of quality and heritage value, including men's and women's clothing and accessories, as well as home accents and a range of apothecary offerings. Visit the MiA Project's official website for all the details, and click ahead for a shoppable taste of what this company is all about.
