The start of November signifies the unofficial beginning of holiday gift-buying season. Just in time for all those presents you need to buy for friends, colleagues and family, we present our second Made in California feature—with a holiday twist.
Buying local remains an increasingly popular idea, and over the holidays, it may be even more difficult to find Golden State goods. According to an L.A. Times article, “Industry experts say that 85% of the toys sold in America are made in China and more than 95% of the clothes are produced overseas. Most consumer electronics, too, are assembled beyond U.S. borders.”
But how do you make your holiday gifting a local affair this year? Finding products made in California can be tricky, but not impossible. Here are a few of our faves:
1. Noir Furniture
Manufactured in Gardena, Noir Furniture ranges “from dark and gothic looking to light and beachy.” Their furniture designs are also featured on the TV show ‘True Blood.” A list of retailers selling Noir Furniture can be found here.
