Incredibly, a conservative media personality’s patriotic clothing line is not made in America.
“Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren announced Friday that her ‘Freedom’ athleisure line is not made in the United States.
After the line was announced a week earlier, critics were quick topoint out the range of sports bras, leggings, and other garments offered in star-spangled and camouflage prints were made in China.
Lahren wrote on Twitter alongside a statement from Alexo Athletica CEO Amy Robbins that the brand that is producing the line ‘aims to be Made in America’ and is still ‘working towards that,’ but ‘increased labor costs and heightened regulations’ pushed their production overseas.
‘Like many American small business owners, Alexo aims to be Made in America,’ Lahren wrote. ‘We are working towards that.’
‘Due to the increased labor costs and heightened regulations many U.S.-based manufacturers face, we were left with little option but to manufacture overseas to start out,’ the statement from Robbins read. ‘We’re working diligently to bring our manufacturing back home to the US and work with other hardworking companies that pride themselves on integrity and quality.'”
