10 Best Made in USA Women’s Clothing Brands

In 1960, about 95 percent of clothes purchased in the USA were made here. 

Now, only around 2% of clothing purchased in America is actually Made in the USA.

There has been a massive shift away from Made in the USA clothing, for a range of reasons. Cost is obviously a driving factor – it’s cheaper to produce clothes abroad. Another big factor is the growth of fast fashion. We consume more clothes per year than ever before, and Made in the USA brands aren’t able to produce at the capacity needed for this.

Luckily, there are a host of brands popping up all over the USA to bring things back to basics, sustainably making clothes in the USA to help us reduce waste and support local artisans and designers.

We’ve curated this list of 10 of the best made in the USA Women’s clothing brands.

Reformation are an already established, and rapidly growing sustainable women’s clothing brand who also make all of their clothes in the USA.

The clothes they make are up-to-date, modern, and look great, and that’s not even the best part about Reformation.

They put sustainability at the core of everything they do, and heavily invest in building the infrastructure to minimize waste, water, and energy footprints of their clothes.

They take everything into consideration when creating their clothes, considering factors such as water input, energy input, land use, eco-toxicity, greenhouse gas emissions, human toxicity, availability, and price. They also consider the after effects of materials, such as microfiber shedding. That’s just the start of it though.

One of the most interesting part’s of Vetta’s approach to fashion is how they curate their clothes into capsules of 5 items each.

With these 5 items, you can build a month’s worth of outfits. You can purchase the capsule as a whole, or individually. Either way, the goal is to help you spend less time choosing an outfit in the morning, and more time enjoying your day.
