There was a time when Americans took pride in the sustainability and craft of their work. There was true artisanship put into everyday objects that is rarely seen today. We no longer think to service an object, but rather replace it with a newer, better one until it breaks and then repeat the cycle. Cheaper and quicker has become the American mentality. Outsource anything we can. The goal of Object Americana is to restore the pre-WW2 trade ideology with American made items redesigned for contemporary appeal - both practical and decorative.
