Hunki Dori Made in the USA products: September 09, 2013 14:04

Hunki Dori prides itself on keeping our production in the USA...when possible.  Our goal is to someday have all our manufacturing labor kept within the USA. Until then, some of our products have a Made in the USA label and others have an Assembled in the USA label.  Many of our products are sewn in the US but made of foreign sourced materials (fabric ~ India/Korea, mats ~ China)

We look forward to the day when these materials become available and plentiful in the US.  How great would it be to have many profitable US based production facilities with skilled workers who can cultivate and produce some of these materials?  Small and medium sized businesses are especially challenged in committing to US production due to the required minimums and higher pricing and being able to compete with the larger manufacturers who produce overseas.

Federal Trade Commission Consumer Product Guidelines

For a product to be called Made in USA, or claimed to be of domestic origin without qualifications or limits on the claim, the product must be "all or virtually all" made in the U.S. The term "United States," as referred to in the Enforcement Policy Statement, includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories and possessions.

A product that includes foreign components may be called Assembled in USA without qualification when its principal assembly takes place in the U.S. and the assembly is substantial. For the "assembly" claim to be valid, the product’s last "substantial transformation" also should have occurred in the U.S. That’s why a "screwdriver" assembly in the U.S. of foreign components into a final product at the end of the manufacturing process doesn’t usually qualify for the "Assembled in USA" claim.

Know what you're purchasing!...be aware of false claims by manufacturers or retailers.
