new balance: made in the usa.

since starting filzfelt, i've become more aware of where things are made and what exactly that means. while we obviously sell felt made in europe (not north america), i am defensive of the quality of our products as well as the environmental standards and wages of the people who make it. i can't tell you how many times we read or hear people complaining about the price of our felt and its hard to compete with mass-produced items of a comparatively lower quality. and i guess the biggest challenge is letting people know the difference and accepting the fact that it may not matter to everyone.
