If April Fool’s day was a day to facetiously suggest that our very exclusive, limited, custom and handmade products were to be mass-produced in China (for those that know, this is the ultimate in sarcasm), then today, April 4th, we will declare our red, white, and blue roots, our undying devotion to maintaining a business and product which has its roots firmly here in American soil.
Every component of our History in VogueTM product line (with rare exception), is produced here in America, is American-made (by just one American person), and those carefully-selected items are most usually the product of another small, often very local business.
One of the founding concepts of NW Limited (formerly NW Columbia Map Company), is in fact, “American-made”, and we have never forgotten that.
Every box bears its Made in USA stamp; each framed, matted and handmade bit of history has a sticker proclaiming the same, and they are placed there with pride.
Much of our original line is a celebration and in honor of this great nation’s history, beginning with the Lewis & Clark Maps, continuing through the 2007 quadirecentennial Jamestown, Virginia Map, and our newest, Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard, which pays tribute to those that lost their lives exploring, supplying and surviving the maritime industry from the earliest years of this nation to the most recent.
The maps and charts form the core of our company, and it is what it means to be “History in Vogue” to celebrate these historic events and pay tribute to them in a way that gives them new and current life.
We are Still Proud to Be An American
Think of the footprints you leave behind, and know that every step you take in this fragile economy has a ripple effect.
Buy American, buy locally, and buy handmade, where ever possible.
We do enjoy our sense of humor, and if we caught any of you off-guard, well….get used to it!
