America's Regional Design

Sure, buying American is something to get behind—we're celebrating it all month long—but if for you buying local is about makers across town, not across state lines, then these designers may very well be up your alley. Burrow deeper into local design with our handy guide to the collectives and creators enlivening five American design scenes from Seattle to Cleveland to good old New York City.

Cloth Extension Cord

This month we're beating the drum of American design, with a special emphasis on those objects you just figure are bound to be made overseas. A fine example, and a remarkably handsome one at that, is this cloth extension cord from the made-in-the-USA obsessed New Yorkers of Best Made Company.

NorthernGRADE Men's Market

We're celebrating the best of American-made design this month, and a pair of guys—Max Wastler and Joe Gannon—who make it their business to celebrate Americana all year long are taking part in the pop-up men's market NorthernGRADE this weekend in Minneapolis. Wastler and Gannon are selling sporting goods all with an American provenance under the name Buckshot Sonny's from noon to 8 PM at Architectural Antiques on Saturday, September 10th. I've known Wastler for a while and Dwell readers unfamiliar with his great blog All Plaid Out will know him for his great essay Ain't That America in the October 2011 issue. I talked with Wastler and Gannon about their venture, why they love American-made goods, and what's in store for Buckshot Sonny's.

American Made School Supplies

In the October 2011 issue we're spotlighting all of our favorite American-made design. To lend a hand, we've asked Michael and Ruth Storc of the great site Design Patriot to share their top Made in the USA finds with us. Keep an eye out for a series of four posts from the duo. Here's their first on American-made school supplies. With the lazy days of summer coming to an end, lots of us have to trudge out to the same old stores for pencils, binders, maybe even a protractor or two. May we suggest you avoid the crowds and shop from home, while doing a little good for the economy? Buy American! There's quite a bit of stuff on your list that is made stateside, and made tastefully we might add.
