Hey there, loyal USA Made folks, we've got a really exciting announcement to make: we're trying out a new line of bags!

The back story here involves a partnership, a heavy dose of entrepreneurism and a 133 year-old company that got its start making sunshades for horse-drawn carriages. (That's right, we're talking pre-automobile here.)

One Friday afternoon back in April I got a phone call from a local business owner with an idea: American-made bags right here in Darke County, Ohio. I have my doubts, but agree to hear him out and visit his 66,000 square-foot building where I find a manufacturing facility featuring a state-of-the-art cutting machine, modern sewing equipment and an experienced and dedicated team. 

Welcome to the Troy Sunshade Company. Founded in the late 1800's, this cut and sew manufacturing group has a long history of innovation and reinvention and, many designs, time trials and product tests later, together we landed on the following initial line of products:

ALL AMERICAN CLOTHING ROUND END DUFFLE BAG
ALL AMERICAN CLOTHING GEAR BAG MADE IN USA
ALL AMERICAN CLOTHING HIP CLIP BAGS

 

Try one out and let us know what you think!
