Over the past 30 years, we’ve watched apparel-manufacturing leave the United States. Now, with Appalachian Gear Company, we’re in a position to do something about it.
While the fiber (and those cute needle felt alpacas!) is responsibly sourced from a yarn producer in Peru, the actual All-Paca fabric and garment is entirely created in the United States. By producing the fabric in our own facility in Charlotte, we are able to:
Have better oversight of the manufacturing process
Ensure the production of a higher quality garment
Respond to technical challenges more efficiently
Develop innovative materials and new garments more quickly
