Vedavoo gear is built and finished to order in America with American materials for lasting quality you can trust
Drive down back roads in America, and there’s a good chance you’ll see what I have: empty factories… run down and decaying from memory. Unfortunately, industries dominated by companies getting their gear produced overseas have forced everyone else to follow suit or die. Even so called “American Made” products are largely built out of components made overseas. Cheap labor over there is killing companies and closing factories here. It’s that simple.
I’m working at Vedavoo to prove that it’s still possible to succeed by staying true to American Made Gear!
Every Bag, Backpack, Daypack, Sling, Wallet, Chest Pack, or accessory we make is designed, cut, prepped, built, and finished by hand with pride in the USA. On top of that, the gear we build is made out of inputs that were also produced domestically – American Woven Cordura, National Molding Buckles, YKK Zippers, Velcro USA closures, and American made webbing. Even our thread is produced in the USA. It costs more – a lot more – but it’s money well spent. We’re keeping Americans from being laid off, and doing what we can to keep moving forward.
If you would like to learn more about our efforts, feel free to contact me directly. I’m passionate about this… and I’d be proud to speak with you.
|PACKS / BAGS||Our packs and bags are designed, prototyped, cut, prepped, and built in our in workshop or by members of our Certify to Sew Team. We take pride in hiring local people to work for us to help support their families. All of our materials used are domestically produced Cordura and Invista fabrics, and we use domestically sourced hardware and components in all our packs. Even our thread is American made. Our belief (simply) is that when we hang the flag on our products, it needs to be respected, and representative of our work as a whole.|
|CUSTOM APPAREL||We’ve worked with a variety of suppliers – looking for the best balance between quality, environmental stewardship, and American production – and our current T-shirts are the product of that search. They are assembled in Central America, but the material itself is woven from American Farmed organic cotton and recycled poly fiber. Then, each shirt is printed or embroidered to order locally to order.|
