Clothing made in the U.S.:
Russian native Galina Sobolev, who learned to sew from her dressmaker grandmother, launched high-end women's clothing line Single in 2000. She expects about $15 million in sales this year, up 50 percent from $10 million in 2010. Apart from feeling it was her "patriotic duty" to keep production in the U.S. because “our country gave so much to us,” Sobolev says she advocates benefits such as quicker turnaround and easier quality control. “Many companies would be amazed if they tried to produce here,” she says.
