Made in the United States of America
Every piece of Ornot cycling gear ever made was printed, cut and sewn in the United States of America. We have made a point to keep our manufacturing domestic, not just because we are proud Americans, but because it fulfills so many of our desires in running a company. Domestic manufacturing is about more than being patriotic, or selling American goods. It's about ensuring a quality product for our consumers, stimulating and participating in a sustainable economy, and having a relationship with the people who make our brand possible.
Quality / Communication
Ornot is committed to offering our customers the highest quality gear possible and that means communicating with our partners on a weekly basis, getting updates on materials and manufacturing, and having an open line of communication about expectations. Having our sewing facilities close makes it easy to communicate and ensure a quality product.
Responsibility to the local economy
It's great that we have created a product that people resonate with, and want to purchase - but it would be unconscionable to profiteer off a luxury item without giving back to the economy that made it possible. Domestic manufacturing injects money into the economy, secures jobs for people who will probably end up buying more US made goods, and stimulates a sustainable system for the future. We couldn't have made it happen without them, and we can't continue to succeed without them.
Community and Personal Relationships
Community is important. Whether we're talking about the world of cycling or the broader community as a whole. We have made an effort to support our local community and give back. Whether it's sponsoring a local High School mountain bike team, manufacturing in the USA, or just helping another rider change a flat, Ornot is committed to our community.
Let's Ride Together
Producing domestically and manufacturing in the USA is more than a hashtag we use on Instagram. Making goods in the USA is something we truly believe in - and will continue to invest in. We hope you do too, Ornot.
