Made in the USA by a small family business!
How do you make these clothespins?
They are currently made using common woodworking tools and good old-fashioned elbow grease. After the two maple wood pieces are created we put them in a tumbler to smooth the edges. They are then dipped into linseed oil and dried for 48 hours. Each clothespin side is checked for possible flaws and then assembled with a spring.
Where do you get the wood and the spring?
Our current wood supplier is in the Pacific Northwest, they are about an hour drive away. They are a small, family operation that we have really enjoyed working with. The trees are mostly from private families in the area. The wood supplier takes pride in assuring that every part of the tree goes to craftsman in the US to be manufactured into useful products. The stainless steel spring is manufactured through a spring company in the US. We can say with certainty that our clothespins are 100% made in America by Americans.
