The North Face has jumped on the bandwagon of going local and domestic with production. The outdoor-apparel company just unveiled the fruits of their Backyard Project, a clothing line that not only features garments made in the USA, but are also 100% made from cotton grown in the States. “The Backyard Project is about connecting with local artisans right here in the U.S.A.,” said Sumi Scott, the director of sportswear. “It’s about knowing which farms grew your cotton, who spun the yarn, or how your product was dyed.”
