Made In America Category Debuts at AmericasMart
Posted on January 9, 2012 by
ATLANTA-In an effort to help boost the U.S. economy and introduce retailers to companies whose products are American-made, AmericasMart will unveil a Made In America category during The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market and the Atlanta International Rug Market this week.
The Made in America category is part of The Temporaries - the Market within the Market - where more than 2,500 temporary exhibiting companies are staged in Buildings 1, 2WW and 3. Made in America exhibitors will be showing a diverse collection of products, including folk art, frames, candles, pottery, furniture, glassware, tumblers, textiles, garden art, wall decor, sculpture, fashion accessories and more.
The designation "Made in America" assures retailers that the product - and most of its component parts - are made and assembled within the USA, according to a statement from AmericasMart. At AmericasMart, to qualify to be in the Made in America Temporaries a product must be assembled in the USA using 75 percent or more component parts produced in the U.S.
