Draper James Jeans: Made in the American South!

A Blue Ridge. GA factory is now home to Draper James Jeans.

In the town of Blue Ridge, GA, workers used to proudly make Levi Jeans….that is until Levi’s started being made in China. Can you believe it? Levi’s made in China? Well, I guess if they can make our American flags, they might as well make what was once America’s favorite jeans for the working man (and women). However, recently, Blue Ridge workers started proudly making jeans for Draper James, the business venture of Tennessee native and actress Reese Witherspoon. In addition, country music songwriting legend Bill Anderson went to Blue Ridge to film a commercial at the plant for American made jeans. So, the next time you are shopping for jeans consider buying “Made in America” and keep our citizens proudly working!
