Not long ago, Cynthia Talley, owner of Happi-Nappi, a manufacturing company, changed her 16 year fabric supplier. Cynthia has had the same philosophy for 18 years of being in business… 100% USA made. Her fabric supplier closed their USA plant, moving the plant overseas. She refused to continue to buy from them. Cynthia stated, “It’s just not worth going overseas! I am a firm believer in keeping jobs in America and want that to be known!” The United States has lost a large number of fabric mills to overseas. Luckily, she found Premier Prints, a print mill a hundred miles east of Memphis. They are printing for her now. New Jersey, New York and North Carolina are other locations where she purchases her materials. According to Cynthia, by buying from small businesses like her own, it helps boost our overall economy during the recession. Consumers forget to look at the whole picture of the cycle of a product from the start of weaving the fabric, to the printing, to the trucking of the goods, to the people who sew the products together, the box manufacturer and the shipping company, who carefully makes sure the finished product get to the customer. This is a particle list of the hands one product goes through before it is purchased.
Happi-Nappi offers cot, mat and crib sheets to the child care industries. To the school industry, the company provides a chair bag that holds student’s supplies such as workbook, pencils and paper.
With Cynthia’s competition purchasing comparable products from overseas, she wants consumers to know the difference in her products, compared to the products most schools and daycares purchase from catalog companies. Cynthia stands behind her words, “The overseas manufactures use cost cutting materials and methods in sewing to save all the pennies they can, therefore the products come into the States to only last a year or two.” Happi-
Nappi believes in producing a quality product even if it costs a dollar or two higher. Her customers are pleased with the USA workmanship by seeing the quality of the products plus their purchases are lasting for several years.
