We're often asked why we manufacture Katherine Way collections in the USA, rather than at an offshore or overseas factory. To us, the choice is simple. Manufacturing apparel in the USA is a great way to support the economy, promote sustainable practices, and produce high-quality garments.
First and foremost, we're committed to supporting domestic manufacturing that helps to boost the American economy, creating jobs and stimulating local businesses. The people who make Katherine Way dresses, tops and bottoms aren't anonymous to us; we get to know them personally and count them as trusted colleagues. Many of these manufacturing pros have been with the brand since its inception so they understand our customers, our product and our vision.

Additionally, when you buy from Katherine Way, you reduce the carbon footprint associated with shipping products from overseas, which can help mitigate the negative impact on the environment.
