We make as many DadGear® & DaisyGear products as possible in the USA. All of our bags are made in Colorado. Sure, we could make more money by producing overseas, but we believe that we should support our own economy and after all, isn’t this country built on small business?

We have a long-standing relationship with a local manufacturer about 20 minutes from our office/warehouse in Colorado. They have been making many of our products since our start in 2006. Over the years we have worked together to streamline our processes and lower manufacturing costs. This has allowed us to provide affordable yet high quality products. This relationship allows us to clearly and effectively communicate improvements and important design features to the production team on an ongoing basis. What this means for you, the end consumer is a better product. This seems like a simple concept, but it is difficult when manufacturing outside of the United States and there is such a massive language and cultural barrier. This is something we know from experience.

As we grow and evolve, we continue to seek out materials closer to home. We have relocated some of our custom plastic manufacturing to a factory a few blocks from us. We work with local artists, vendors and consultants and we even source our shipping supplies locally. This is something we consider important. Bringing sources closer to our location also helps us reduce our carbon footprint. Less fuel = better air.

We are proud of our dedication to supporting the United States economy as well as local Colorado businesses and jobs. Hopefully you’ll appreciate our efforts and feel good about your Colorado – USA made DadGear® & DaisyGear products.
