the opportune time to make is now

CNBC published an article on the U.S economy and the changes we have seen as a result of the pandemic. In this article they talk about the changing economy in America, with American Made companies at the start of 2020 looking optimistically to the coming year and with plans of market growth and expansion in mind. At Clutch Made, we have seen a growth in the interest clients have to make in the USA as well as shop USA made products on Clutch Bags.

The team at our factory have been inundated with awesome new clients and a wave of making in the USA that we feel is set to stay. What the pandemic brought was the realisation of how much the economy and globe depends on the outsourcing and production of goods. This means less being produced in our own economy, less support for smaller business, less jobs in the market and more impacts on sustainability and ethical production. People want to know who is making their products, where they are being made and whether they are positively impacting families, small businesses, workers, the planet and our local economy.

So what does this mean for budding designers, creative thinkers and side hustlers? The opportune time to make is now. As brick and mortar is becoming obsolete, inventory is running low and the market is not overly saturated, there is an awesome opportunity to get into the market whilst the consumer shopping trends are gravitating to locally and USA made. There shouldn't be a reason for people to think that they can't make marketable and successful accessories in the USA. We understand that it can be overhwhelming, or uncertain. But that's why at Clutch Made Factory we have developed an easy streamlined system for our team and clients to work together through whatever steps they need whether that's tech packs, sourcing, social media and more.
