Made in Alaska: 7 Alaskan Designers

, , Leave a comment

An official ‘Made in Alaska’ stamp exists for items that are completely made in Alaska. Like the ‘Fair Trade’ and ‘USDA Organic’ stamps, the ‘Made in Alaska’ symbol evokes a mixture of pride and vague optimism about the world—or at least about Alaska.

Made in Alaska‘ has also become a parody, screen printed on t-shirts and underwear. (The phrase may refer to Alaskans themselves, after all.)

Of course, there are a number of Alaskans who design and produce items without the official symbol. You can search for these artists on Etsy.com or simply view the artists featured here:
