What better gift to give friends near and far than Michigan-made products? These gifts help support the Michigan economy, and native Michiganders will appreciate how the presents remind them of their home state. Read on to learn about some of our favorite items that are made up north and in Oakland County!
Mittens from the mitten state!
Up North Mittens are made in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula (affectionately known as the “U.P.”). These handmade wool mittens will keep you warm throughout long, cold winters. Each pair is made from recycled buttons and wool sweaters containing at least 70% wool. No two pairs of Up North Mittens are alike due to their re-purposed materials. For a fun touch, Michigan themed mittens have an Upper Peninsula shape on one hand and a Lower Peninsula shape on the other hand. Each pair includes a small gemstone and instructions on how to apply it to your favorite location in Michigan.
Woolen Remakes are not only made in Michigan, they’re made in Clothing Cove’s hometown of Milford! These mittens are also made of repurposed materials and no two pairs are alike. They’ll keep you cozy thanks to the wool sweaters that they’re made from.Woolen Remakes styles have a cute retro/vintage feel and feature antique buttons.
Scarves of Westwood
Since bundling up during Michigan winters is a necessity, a scarf makes a great gift. Scarves of Westwood have a whimsical look thanks to combinations of fringe, beads, and ribbon that make every scarf unique. Each handmade scarf is made of high-quality beads and yarn. Visit our Tenacity boutique (next door to Clothing Cove) to browse the many designs we have in stock.
Rachel Marie Designs Jewelry
Jewelry is a classic gift, and Rachel Marie Designs heirloom jewelry is an exceptional choice. The company is based in Commerce, Michigan. Genuine Swarovski crystals give the jewelry eye-catching sparkle that pairs well with everything from jeans and a tee to formalwear. Every piece is made by hand and features lead-free and nickel-free backings. The Rachel Marie line includes classic styles, edgy contemporary styles, and glamorous statement pieces.
We are also excited to add another Milford-Made product to our Michigan Collection at Tenacity Boutique. Locals glass artists from STRAWESOME create reusable glass straws that replace the plastic straws that we so quickly discard after we have a drink. They come in 2 different links and several widths including one just for thick smoothies. They are green, sustainable and offer several styles that support a variety of global non-profits! A custom straw cleaner and carrying case are also available.
