All Tough TravelerŽ Products are USA-Made in NYS, in our Fair-Trade Production Facility, Under USA-Labor & USA-Environmental Laws.
USA-Labor and USA-Environmental Laws are more stringent than in most other textile manufacturing countries (such as China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc.).
|Tough Traveler Ltd. Manufactures all our Products in the USA, & we use almost exclusively USA-Made Materials.|
Currently, most Retail Stores' Backpacks, Luggage, Bags, Baby Carriers, and Membership Gifts, Premiums, etc., are made in Asia or other Low-Labor and Low-Environmental Law Countries.
TOUGH TRAVELER PRODUCTS ARE USA-MADE:
We operate in our own USA factory, which we believe allows us to keep a closer eye on our production.
We have high standards for product durability and quality workmanship.
We can discuss modifications or unique custom products when needed.
We believe we adhere to higher standards in our manufacturing process than most textile imports, and our factory is on a bus line, in a neighborhood, and we make products that are very durable. We practice sustainable manufacturing, and are "sweatshop-free." Our older building was converted to a factory, and, in addition to good upkeep, we have participated in National Grid's Energy Program.
|We were on the on the CNN Lou Dobbs show, where we showed viewers that there still are USA-made bags, USA-made luggage, USA-made backpacks, USA-made baby carrier backpacks, and other USA-made textile bags and pack products.|
Most retailers primarily buy/sell imports, nevertheless we have continued to make our excellent products in the USA, making them available through the internet directly to customers.
Tough Traveler has been designing and manufacturing in the United States for 40 years;
although many USA products were excellently made, most retailers and marketers
went to imports, while many people in the USA have lost jobs they had skills to do.
Tough Traveler products are known for their high quality, and we hope you will become one of our many wonderful customers.Contact Us
