Top 10 Products Made in America

 

Making the CNBC list of cool products Made in America is an honor for Quivvers!  We are proud to be manufacturing our product right here in the USA - and love the designation as cool.  

During development, we were told by every industry expert and advisor - "Go to Asia."  No one thought we could surmount the costs or even find what we needed in the USA.  They were a little bit right.  The cheaper and easier route would have been to take advantage of the cheap labor & infrastructure overseas to make the bottom line better for Quivvers.  USA manufacturing was a riskier and more difficult plan.  It was enticing to think about the overseas solution - less cost would be more profit for us.  It also would have been a path already paved with the many service providers offering total process oversight.

We just couldn't do it.  It did not seem right for Quivvers.  We saw an advantage in being closely involved with the manufacturing process and innovation right down to having a relationship with the person making quivvers.  We did not want to increase the carbon footprint shipping these goods across seas.  We saw a bigger opportunity to affect the USA economy and our own community.  We wanted to do it differently.  Mostly, we were alright earning less profit - actually, none on the first few batches - to give USA manufacturing a chance. 

We are 1.5 years into business and have found amazing results with our tenacity and patience.  Our quality is even higher than overseas production.  Our innovation has not stopped.  We know our product in every aspect- and the people making it for us. We know every dollar is affecting the USA economy and our community.  And, we are a cool product, too.  Thank you, America!

Very cool. Would be great for amusement parks. I had having to go though a bag check and with the clear plastic, why wouldn’t you be able to use this and breeze right through!
More solid basic colors would be welcome!

I really want to buy one or two of these, but right now there are no colors available that I like. Could you please restock the solid blues and neon greens? I prefer buying American made products, but what you have available online are not very appealing. Thanks, I’ll be checking back in….
