James Fox


James has spent half his life shuttling between southern Vermont and the borders of Scotland. From that upbringing came an equal appreciation for John Buchan and tweed, as well as Americana. You might find him outside grilling chicken thighs or rescuing thrift store brogues to have them resoled. He now works with the digital libraries and metadata of some of your favorite brands…

Don Rongione

American Made Matters

American Made Matters was launched on July 4, 2009 by Don Rongione, President and CEO of Bollman Hat Company in Adamstown, PA. Rongione grew up in Philadelphia where his father, Nick, was a cutter in a coat making factory. Don’s father instilled in him the importance of American manufacturing and buying American made products. As CEO of Bollman, America's oldest hat maker, Rongione experienced the tragic decline of American manufacturing first hand when loss of major customers to foreign competition forced him to lay off 100 U.S. manufacturing employees. It was this experience that led Rongione to create an organization dedicated to educating consumers on just how important American manufacturing is to our country. With the help of a handful of US manufacturers, American Made Matters was born.
We have the ability to change our economy and to strengthen our communities one purchase at a time. American consumers have tremendous economic clout and they need to realize the importance of buying American made goods. It only takes few seconds to look at a tag or to ask a sales person if they carry any made in USA brands. Many times you’ll be surprised that there isn’t much of a price difference, and American made goods are often better quality. With every purchase we have the ability to create jobs and better opportunities for our children and grandchildren.Don Rongione
