When you pop a Stormy Kromer cap on your head, you’re supporting American workers. Nearly all of our cut and sew work is done in the USA. Those few items that aren’t created here are made by carefully chosen partners who share our high standards for quality and ethics.
Quality starts with materials and people. We search the globe for the most comfortable, durable fabrics and trim materials, and then we put them in the hands of our talented, capable craftspeople here in Michigan and with other partners coast to coast. From designers to cutters to sewing machine operators, our team is meticulous and experienced. They take enormous pride in their work.
When we do need a specialized machine or a skillset we don’t have, instead of sacrificing quality, we turn to our partners to fill the gaps. We partner with a knitting mill in New Jersey, a ballcap maker in North Carolina, and a screen printer in Wisconsin. We even have a partner in Honduras — a family-run manufacturer that’s certified by the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) program.
We also proudly partner with St. Luke’s N.E.W. Life Center in Flint, Michigan, a non-profit that provides life skills, education, and workplace training. The workers in their industrial sewing center produce several of our popular apparel items.
No matter where our products are made, we make sure every item is carefully inspected before we ship it off to you. For more detail on our manufacturing and sourcing processes, click here.
