Two characteristics that provide crystal clear evidence of just how committed certain companies are to “Buying American” are how and where they place their information on their website declaring all of their products are “made in USA.”

American Draperies & Blinds is a company any patriotic consumer would want to do business with since they make it a priority to make it extremely clear that when you place an order with them, you’re going to receive quality-made, American-made merchandise in return.

When I discovered this American-owned company and its website, www.AmericanDrapery.com, it was almost instantly obvious this was a company I wanted to feature in one of my “Buy American Mention of the Week” articles.

American Draperies & Blinds makes it clear it will produce nowhere but in America, and the company has been doing it for over 50 years, so making things in the USA is not something it’s been merely experimenting with to “see how it goes.”

When you visit www.AmericanDrapery.com, you’ll notice a big button-shaped “made in USA” logo right next to the company name. Then, just a few inches down from that, you’ll see “American Made Drapes and Blinds since 1954.”

When you browse to their “About Us” page to view the company profile, what’s the first thing they are quick to tell you about? No, it’s not their contact information or the history behind their first company CEO. It’s about “American made” and the fact that their factories are right here in America. Even their FAQ page starts out by telling us how important it is to buy American products!

But let’s face it, if you buy American you also want to know your product purchase is going to be one that is of good quality and long-lasting.

At American Draperies & Blinds, they serve not just the consumer, but also commercial markets, government, schools, colleges, hotels, motels, senior housing, and hospitals. Quality companies don’t expand into so many diverse markets by putting out poor products – that’s for sure.

And the duration of their warranty? In a word, “forever.” American Draperies & Blinds will repair or replace blinds for mechanical parts or workmanship, even if you have them for 30 years.

Try finding a retail store that will offer a lifetime warranty, particularly on mini-blinds like American Draperies & Blinds. You’ll be hard pressed to find one.

American Draperies & Blinds actually owns and operates its own factories, bypassing the middleperson, so you can typically save 50-80 percent off normal retail prices. This also enables them to offer factory direct pricing and better volume discounts to give you extra low prices on larger quantity purchases.

You’ll find everything you need at American Draperies & Blinds, such as drapes, curtains, rods and other hardware, mini-blinds, vertical blinds, and shades.

Take it from me – don’t waste your time driving around town to an assortment of retail stores hoping to find American-made drapes and curtains. I’ve been there. You’ll spend most of your day and probably most of the gas in your tank, and you may not find what you want anyway.

In addition to saving money at American Draperies & Blinds, you’ll get all the support you need, and they even talk you through the measuring process on the phone if you need it to make sure you get the exact product you want the first time, saving future frustration.

American Draperies & Blinds has “American” in their name for a reason, and that is because they are proud to keep Americans working. Few things make a consumer more proud to support an American company than that.

So if you need quality, eco-friendly, long lasting-blinds, curtains or drapes, check out American Draperies & Blinds before you spend all your time and gas money only to look at “Made in China” labels all day long at the retail chain stores. The only label you’ll find with American Draperies & Blinds is the best one for the American consumer and the American economy – and that’s “Made in USA.”
