  As we anticipate celebrating our nation’s independence on July 4th, it’s an appropriate time to reflect on why “Made in the USA” matters.   We’re proud to say we’ve been manufacturing our hand-tuned wind chimes in America for over 30 years. We manufacture our chimes in Manassas Park, Virginia and use raw materials from American lumber and aluminum suppliers.   Our hand-crafted chimes start with nylon cording, redwood and aluminum alloy tubes that are sourced and manufactured in the USA. Then our craftspeople design, engineer and assemble each chime to be truly captivating—individually testing the tone, resonance and pitch of each...
