Made in America

March 17, 2009

One of our biggest dissapointments when we began creating Ojamas was the lack of textile manufacturing in the US. We obviously would have dearly loved to proudly put “Made in America” on our Ojamas labels, and we tried very hard to find a vendor here at home, but ultimately we were only able to find textilers in Asia that could meet our production needs. While most of our customers have not mentioned the issue, a few have expressed their concerns which we truly share.

The reality of textile manufacturing is that the industry has all but completely left our shores due in large part to the reduced costs of foreign labor. Most of the clothing found in the US with a “Made in America” label, sadly, is actually made in China or Southeast Asia. How can that be? Frankly, it’s a matter of encomics. The textile companies recognize two groups of consumers. The first group is comprised of those consumers who place a higher priority on value and price. The second is a group which places at least some importance on buying American-made products. Without so much as a wink to ethics, some companies are sticking “Made in America” on items made elsewhere simply to “trick” consumers into buying their products.

This was never a consideration for Ojamas Sleepwear. We’re a true American company trying to find a way to breathe life into an industry at home and restore American jobs and quality in our own market place. We will not accomplish that by fraudulently labeling our products, as much as we’d love to sell more. No gain is worth sacrificing the trust we’re trying to build with our customers. Currently over 97% of all apparel is made outside of the USA. With your help, we’re going to try to take some of that back.

You haven’t seen new products from us since our original Ojamas because we’ve been working hard to find American partners that share our vision. We have, however, made tremendous improvements in the products we’re importing. If you’ll continue to support us as we delivery higher quality products, you’ll also be enabling us to build greater manufacturing capacity (and jobs) here in the US. We’re not there yet, but when you see a “Made in America” label on Ojamas Sleepwear, you’ll know it’s the real deal – a name you can trust. Thanks for your continued support. For more information please see this article by Terri Gruca of WCCO.

Ojamas Hailed by Gov’s Hub

January 16, 2009

Michigan’s First Gentleman, Mr. Daniel Granholm Mulhern published an article recently about the challenges we face econmically and otherwise, and he shared his thoughts on how we should approach the tasks.  He calls out Ojamas Sleepwear as a case study.  Very interesting perspective.

Ojamas Holds the Phones

December 17, 2008

An update from their Obama Community Blog:

All orders placed before 12/15 are either already in the mail or being shipped this weekend with an estimated delivery before Christmas (12/23-24).  There will be some that will arrive later, but it is impossible to tell which ones as the US Postal Service is making excellent progress with in all geographies so far.  We are dedicating all of our resources to printing labels and postage and packaging orders for shipment from now until all orders placed through 12/15 have been mailed.

If you’d like to know the status of your order specifically, please send an email to service@ojamas.us and include the invoice number as well as your last name.  We ask that you do not call us for status updates on the shipment of existing orders at this time.  Phone requests for status are not being answered because it takes our staff away from packing and shipping which are are tasks that require human concentration and focus.  Answering phones to search for status can introduce distractions that cause errors which we are stringently trying to avoid at this critical time to ensure that everyone receives error-free delivery. We’ll be back to answering the phones as usual after we’ve shipped everything ordered through 12/15 (estimated Monday, 12/22).

Orders placed after 12/15 are being delivered as soon as possible. Most will be shipped before 12/23.  We thank all of you for your enthusiastic embrace of Ojamas and for your patience as we deliver them to you as quickly as possible.

Shipping Update

December 7, 2008
SOLD OUT

SOLD OUT

Our offer of a free “Yes We Did” sticker expired today as we have exceeded our alotment of 1000 units.  There are still plenty of Ojamas (pajamas and gowns) available in all sizes for holiday delivery, but we’ve run out of the Shepard Fairey stickers.  Everyone who ordered Ojamas gowns or pajamas before today will receive one (per order) before Christmas.  If you didn’t get your order in soon enough for the sticker, don’t let that stop you from getting the best political pajamas and gowns in history.  Whether  you’re collecting Obama memorabilia or you feel a special connection with the new First Family as many of us supporters do, you can give the most memorable and unique gift of the season with Ojamas.  Orders placed before 12/15 for delivery in the US are guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas.  Orders placed between 12/16 and 12/20 have a good chance of being delivered by 12/24, but each day that passes after 12/16 poses a greater challenge for a pre-Christmas delivery.  Don’t forget inauguration.  Even if you don’t get your order placed in time for Christmas, there is no finer way to enjoy the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States than while wrapped in the soft warmth of genuine Ojamas. Order yours now.
