In the many corners of the American landscape there exist a plethora of American Small Businesses making and manufacturing quality garments, accessories, home goods, sport items and more. By choosing to produce their wares in the U.S.A., they are supporting their local communities, forging new business relationships, implementing sound business practices, controlling their quality, decreasing their carbon footprint and helping to grow the American economy.
In 2016, the All New American Made Artisanal Initiative Inc., (ANAMAI,) with 501(c)(3) Non-Profit status, was founded with the purpose of providing fuel, in the form of grants, to the American Small Business engine that powers America. Along the way, some of these small businesses need help in order to get to the next level while NOT sacrificing their artistic integrity or their support for ‘Made in America’ and all the components that go with that label.
Prior to his passing in 2013, Henry Frank Weeden, artist, sculptor, painter, candlemaker, American manufacturer and co-founder of ANA Design requested that a website be designed that would not only spotlight the many American Small Businesses made up by a profusion of talented makers, artisans and manufacturers producing quality American Made goods, but also help to support and promote them.
With the rise of the Internet and the decline of retail Bricks & Mortar, consumer habits are rapidly changing. More and more artisans and makers are offering their brands directly to the consumer through their websites and social media.
NOW is the time to provide a one-of-a-kind marketplace for consumers to shop for the best in American goods.
NOW is the time to strengthen the role of American design in today’s marketplace.
NOW, the many quality American Made goods, hidden in the recesses of the internet, are just a click away.
The forgotten world of American craftsmanship and manufacturing is asserting itself once again and All New American is proud to deliver the work of the many American Small Businesses who have made “Quality American Made” a truth to be proud of again.
