Products Still Made in the USA

Keeping Production Stateside

As the economy has become increasingly global, it's become steadily more difficult to find products made in the United States. For many consumers, "Made in USA" is a mark of quality that makes a purchase more worthwhile. In a 2019 survey by Thomas, around 62% respondents said they preferred to buy American-made. Past surveys found more than 20% saying they'd be willing to pay up to 10% more for it, yet Thomas found 46% saying new tariffs were too disruptive to the U.S. economy. Although many popular brands seem to be stamped with "Made in China" labels, there are still companies whose products are made right here in the USA.

Prices and availability are subject to change.

The classic giant brick of Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Soap speaks not just to the sense of humor of this Minneapolis men's grooming brand, but to its military inspiration – the company says the soap is similar to what G.I.s were given in the Korean War and is made in the same family-owned plant that was the biggest supplier to the military then (though Duke Cannon itself was founded in 2011). The company makes everything from "beard balm" to waterless "field towels," all packaged with its witty brand of machismo.
