This summer you may see a lot of red, white, and blue in SAS stores as we celebrate our American heritage and the fact that we’ve kept manufacturing here in America for over 40 years. You also will see “Made in the USA” on some of our products, but not on others. So what does that mean? Here are some facts about where we make our products and why.
– SAS owns and operates two factories in Texas, our original factory in San Antonio, which was established in 1976, and a factory in Del Rio that opened its doors in 1985.
-SAS owns and operates a sister plant in Acuna, Mexico where employees perform select operations such as hand sewing and stitching on a number of styles. We do not outsource our production.
-SAS set out to make more dressy and stylish options. That’s when we started working with a family-owned company in Italy to create a selection of our dress shoes. We now make some of those styles in America, that’s why you will see some that are labeled “Made in U.S.A.” and some “Made in Italy.”
-SAS takes great strides to source our materials from American vendors, which isn’t always easy. When we can’t find what we need, we source limited materials outside the U.S.
