WYOMINGâEd Smith, owner of Chariho Furniture, opened up his suit jacket and pointed to the red, white and blue American flag stitched inside.
âPeople say, âYou canât buy American-made clothing,ââ Smith said. âItâs got to be American-made. I donât think this country would be in the position itâs in if people felt that way.â
For Ed Smith, âMade in Americaâ is more than an empty slogan. Chariho Furniture prides itself on selling only American-made solid-wood furniture. They carry over 100 different brands, 20 of them Amish, and they specialize in pieces made to the customerâs exacting specifications. Everything can be customized, from the wood to the fabric to the finish to the hardware.
