Since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the United States has stamped, carved, cut, built and assembled its way into becoming the super power of product production. However, in the last 20 years, the “Made in America” tag began to fade, as the manufacturing landscape of industry went overseas. So what is still Made in the USA? Visit the world’s biggest and oldest flag manufacturer, which has made some of the most famous flags in history. Go inside the factories that produce the last athletic shoe made in the US. See the strangest form of alternate transportation known to man–completely assembled in 30 minutes. Check out a hot toy company that believes it’s imperative to keep their work here at home. Top it all off with some great food–some American success stories that may seem foreign at first glance. It’s not just a label. It’s a proud and important tradition.
