"OUR MICROFIBER MANUFACTURING PARTNERS ARE AS COMMITTED TO QUALITY AND INNOVATION AS WE ARE."
One of the most frequent questions we get is “Where is your microfiber made?” When our customers or potential customers ask that question, they’re hoping the answer is the USA. That’s not the answer to the question, the answer is China (mostly). Virtually all microfiber manufacturing is done there. It’s unfortunate, but there are no microfiber cleaning products wholly produced in the US.
With that out of the way, I do want to let our customers know about the people that we do business with there. I want to highlight the factory that custom manufactures nearly all of our microfiber towels and some of our mop pads. There’s a perception in the U.S. that Chinese factories are all sweat shops with awful working conditions. While I’m sure that those kinds of factories exist (although I’ve never seen it in person):
"I WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT THERE’S ANOTHER, MORE PROFESSIONAL SIDE OF
CHINESE MANUFACTURING, AND THAT’S WHO WE CHOOSE TO DO BUSINESS WITH."
The owners of this factory are a young married couple. The husband first came across microfiber in college and, being an entrepreneur, started selling it while still in school. Within a few years he had started his own factory. When I initially met them, I was surprised by their business philosophy and felt like we were kindred spirits. They’re as passionate about microfiber as I am. They focus on quality and innovation, not price. I know that sounds like a cliché, but it’s true. I’ve met with many other factory representatives and owners, and this owner was very different.I found that other factories weren’t as interested in discussing how to make better products, they were only interested in telling me how they can give me the cheapest price which generally translates into the lowest quality products. These owners were excited by our commitment to providing the highest quality at fair prices, and we geeked out talking about microfiber.When I visited their factory for the first time, I was stunned.
It was not what I had expected at all. I was led through the warehouse area, which was neat, clean and organized. They pointed out many pallets of rolls of microfiber. It was microfiber that was produced for Microfiber Wholesale but didn’t pass their standards because of relatively minor streaking in the dye. Quite honestly, I was surprised that they didn’t use it.
