We are so honored to have been selected as a finalist in the Style category for Martha Stewart’s American Made competition. Grace is particularly overjoyed, as Martha is one of her all time heroes and she swoons at the thought of meeting her face to face. This competition is great because it spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade.
This event brings attention to the skilled craftspeople, artisans, and innovators that drive local economies and create beautiful and inspiring goods. What an awesome way to show American that there are still so many talented folks making quality, useful products in the USA. Winners of this competition will receive $10,000 to grow their businesses, a trip to NYC, not to mention incredible exposure throughout the Martha Stewart Living network. Needless to say, the money and press could do wonders for Appalatch. Our mission is to upend the clothing industry and prove that apparel can be made in the US without compromising ethics, quality, or the environment. Being a winner of the American Made competition could help us reach so many people that are open to better alternatives.
