Made in USA Summer Clothing for Kids

We all know that finding children’s clothes made in the USA can be a challenge. Finding SPECIFIC made in the USA children’s clothing items is even MORE challenging. With the temperatures rising and vacation on the horizon, my kiddos are in drastic need of summer clothing, especially beach gear. And so began my quest for American made UV protective beach wear for both my kiddos, boys’ summer clothes, and kids’ sandals.  Here is what I found.

  7. Tim Terrillion says:

    we bought Kepner Scott sandals and saddle shoes,splendid Tops, city threads undies for the grandchildren, we love and they love them. We have also bought from Nordstrom and chasing fireflies, very nice clothing. We will have to try Flap Happy also. There is one more for Kids also, it’s called CWD Kids. As with all you have to check to see which one are made in USA.

  8. Maryann D. says:

    I think GrUVy Wear UV protected swim shirts are a great idea for kids and I would like this myself. All these companies seem like they have wonderful products.

  9. I have to say I’ve never heard of any of these companies, but I want to check out each one!! Made in USA for the best quality and help US workers!

  10. Maryann D. says:

    There are a lot of terrific Made in America clothing companies for children. I live in NY but never heard of Winter Water Factory , based out of Brooklyn. I will check it out.

  11. janelle knutson says:

    I like the fact that you have a list for kids clothes, but are there any companies that sell clothes in the larger sizes than those mentioned here? I am looking for clothes that can be played in and that don’t look like little adult clothes. I have checked out these sites and they just don’t fit what I am looking for. thank you

  12. I appreciate the tip in your article about doing a search for ‘Made in USA’ on the Nordstrom site. It’s good to know that their site allows you to search that way and that they are among the best at providing country of origin labeling. I know from experience that some shopping sites make it difficult to determine where items are made.
