This prestigious award is open to all companies that have successfully reshored the sewing of any product to the U.S., accelerating the Made in America movement.

U.S. reshoring is the practice of transferring offshore business operations or sourcing back to the U.S. in addition to any new or significantly increased production in the U.S. from importing. The Made in America Movement is focused on increasing production in the U.S. to strengthen the economy and bring jobs back to the U.S. The SEAMS organization drives this trend with a membership of the leading U.S. brands, manufacturers and retailers in the sewn products industry.

Eligibility for this award must include production reshoring from offshore back to the U.S. or represent new production that has taken market share from imports between January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2022.

There will be awards for three industry categories:

  • Cut and sew manufacturers;

  • Brands/OEMS/Vertical Retailers; and

  • Textile Providers (products produced in the United States).

Relevant companies for any sewn products are encouraged to apply.

Request for applications must be received by July 31, 2022. Final applications must be submitted by Aug 15, 2022. Links to award details and initial online application are available on both SEAMS and the Reshoring Initiative websites.
