"Made in the USA" Clothespins

The Clothespin Challenge!

We would love to sell "Made in the USA" clothespins. But we have not found any that are manufactured in America. If you are willing to make clothespins here in the US, we will sell them here on our website and help market them for you. Please contact us!
 

USA clothespins

 

Between 1852 and 1887, the US Patent Office granted patents to 146 different clothespins.

Some Clothespin History...

Penley Corporation which was founded in 1923 was the last company in America to make wooden clothes pins. In December 2002, their clothespin plant in West Paris, Maine laid off it's manufacturing employees. Penley now imports and distributes clothespins - the very ones they used to compete against.

Between 1852 and 1887, the US Patent Office granted patents to 146 different clothespins.

Why this is important...

American wood product manufacturing companies are in danger. They need customers like you that are willing to look beyond the cheap prices of Chinese imports. That is why we are so proud to be able to offer this clothespin challenge. If anyone or any company is willing to produce wooden "Made in USA" clothespins or pegs we will sell them on our website.

Plastic clothespins also have their place in the laundry room. They can be perfect for some applications. But again, no "Made in America" plastic clothespins are being manufactured either.

Our clothes pin challenge applies to any material: wood, plastic, or metal - and to any style of clothespins - if you make them in the USA, we will sell them right here on our website.
