    Makers Monday Returns With An American-made Comeback

    Makers Monday: December 1, 2014

    Makers Monday is returning to support American craftsmanship. One year ago, Shinola created the national Makers Monday campaign to celebrate and support the resurgence of American making. This year, with new partners Cool Hunting and New Balance, Shinola is urging consumers to ring in another holiday season by pledging to buy an American-made product on the first Monday after Thanksgiving. If you’re a Maker, get involved by registering your brand.

    Introducing the Shinola Supply Blanket by Faribault Woolen Mill

    The fabric of Faribault Woolen Mill Co. is woven into Minnesota history and stands as a living testament to American craftsmanship. Faribault woolens have served generations from pioneers heading west to American troops overseas, and are frequently handed down as family heirlooms in the Land of Lakes. Renowned for comfort and quality, the nearly 150-year-old mill on the banks of the Cannon River produces fine woolen blankets, throws and scarves along with other accessories using century-old machinery.

    Meet Katie O., Seamstress of Shinola Leather Goods

    With a background in making theater costumes, Katie O. creates the finished sample products for our leather collection, which includes a lot of trial and error and a much needed go-with-the-flow attitude. Katie has been seamstress of Shinola leather goods for nearly a year, and her passion for sewing is always present in her life, from the clothes she makes for herself—she’s currently making her own wedding dress—to the handmade leather journals, bags and accessories she helps craft in our Detroit leather factory. We couldn’t ask for anyone better to bring our men’s and women’s leather designs to life.
