Made in the USA: Great products from around the nation

At Marvin Windows and Doors, we’re proud to be handcrafted in America. We’re a family-owned and operated company headquartered in a small town, and our values run deep–they’re a huge part of why we make such beautiful windows and doors. But we’re far from the only company that makes their products in the USA, so today we thought we would highlight a few others.
Kohler is well-known for its gorgeous bathroom and kitchen products. They’re based in Sheboygan, Wisc., and have been making some very innovative products for 140 years. If you’re looking for a luxurious kitchen/bath experience, Kohler is a great choice. This sok® bath is roomy enough to stretch out in. Effervescent bubbles help the bather relax, and there’s even chromatherapy so you can add some color to your bathtime. We’d love to slip into this bath after a long day!
You probably know about L.L. Bean for its Bean boots and outdoor clothing. They’re based in Maine, so the company really understands that their quality needs to match up to a northeast winter. Did you know that in addition to clothing, they also make home goods? If you’ve never had the experience of falling asleep atop an L.L. Bean feather bed, we highly recommend it — just dreamy! Since the company has been around since 1912, they have more than a century of experience in “keeping customers satisfied as a guiding principle.”
Here’s a company that’s right in our neck of the woods: J.W. Hulme has been around since 1905 and they sure do know their business! Their leather goods are some of the best we’ve ever seen, handcrafted in St. Paul, Minn. If you need a classic purse that will look good 50 years from now, you might want to take a look. We’re enamored with this beautiful duffle bag. It might be just the thing to take on the trip of a lifetime!
It seems like any article about a high-end kitchen features Viking appliances. Not only are they professional-grade workhorses, but they look absolutely beautiful. Did you know that they’re made in the USA? Greenwood, Miss., is home to this company. It’s hard to choose, but if we could pick one item for our fantasy kitchen, it would have to be this 60″ dual fuel range. Cooking for a crowd would never be a problem if you had this!
