Buying well-designed American-made goods is a conscious act, akin to buying food at a farmers’ market. Is it sometimes more expensive? Yes, but there’s value in not only knowing the origin of what you purchase but also in creating a connection with the maker of your goods.

With that in mind, Fast Company found the 76 best products designed and made domestically—everything from surfboards to coffee filters to handbags stitched from cast-off clothes—and dug deep into their creation. In this app, you’ll find:
