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.
