Once again we discovered a variety of companies with great products that are Made in the USA. This week we feature one product with teething rings for babies, one with leotards for young active girls and one with stylish medical scrubs for female medical professionals. All are certainly niche products but they are also all companies run by average people who discovered a niche and are striving to fill it.

One other interesting aspect of these companies is that they make extensive use of As you may already know, Amazon lists over 20,000,000 items as being Made in the USA. Granted, some of those listings are not accurate and you do need to check out the specifications of any product that you are going to buy. But they do have lots of products from A to Z.

Mette Medical Scrubs

If you are a female medical professional you may have grown tired of wearing the same old scrubs that don’t fit right and have a noticeable lack of style. That’s what Mette Singer used to think but she went out and did something about it. She has created medical scrubs that look and fit great and will keep you comfortable throughout your long, busy day. They are easy to care for, durable and are Made in the USA.

Mette was born and raised in Denmark and started sewing at the age of 7. She became a medical professional and worked in several European hospitals before moving to the USA in the 1980’s. During her career in which she wore scrubs everyday, she realized that they really didn’t fit very well, weren’t very comfortable, didn’t have much style and didn’t hold up to the active pace of her jobs. So, she took matters into her own hands. She got out her design pencil and her sewing machine and started searching for just the right fabric. Soon she was making her own scrubs and the rest is history.

Mette uses Cool Dry fabric which is also used in high performance athletic wear. It’s soft, lightweight, stretchy and provides long-lasting fit. The fabric wicks moisture from your skin, is antibacterial and prevents odors. It comes in a Poplin and Sateen and the blends are made with 97% cotton and 3% spandex.

They also have great looking affordable maternity styles so you never have to look anywhere else for your medical scrubs needs.

Pelle Activewear

This may be the shortest feature I’ll ever write. There just isn’t much information on their website. But, they are certainly selling a product that many little girls need and they do list their items as being Made in the USA.

Just about the only information on their website is what follows.

We’re a family owned business located on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State. Pelle has sold to gymnastics pro-shops across the USA since 1993. Owen and Shawn Fowler (husband and wife) bought Pelle in 2008.

They offer fun and colorful leotards and biketards and usually each print is available in both styles.

You can purchase their products from their own web store and on They also are listed at a number of retailers and websites discovered through a Google search. On their store they offer both a size chart and a count of how many are in stock. Their sizes range from 3T – AS or from what they list as from 25 lbs to 103 lbs.

They list just a little more information on Amazon.

Pelle has sold to gymnastics pro-shops across the USA since 1993. We’re tag-less (no scratchy tags), fussy about the quality and feel of the fabrics we choose, and use a soft, durable thread. Pelle biketards utilize a gusset in the crotch (like high-performance shorts and underwear), resulting in a more comfortable garment.
