Burgeon proudly designs outdoor apparel in Lincoln, NH. Our products are born in the White Mountains and inspired by our experiences.
Once we have a concept for a product, we work with Merrow Manufacturing of Fall River, MA to select the best materials and design.
Sustainable and local manufacturing is at the core of everything we do. We use natural or recycled materials sourced from the United States whenever possible. For example, our Flume base layer is 91% tencel - a sustainable plant-based fabric, and our Washington outer layer is 100% recycled polyester. Both fabrics are made in the USA!
We then vigorously test our prototypes in the harsh conditions of the White Mountains and other locations. This year we tested our product in the White Mountains, Jackson Hole Wyoming, Alta Utah, and Slovenia. This wear, fit and function testing allow us to optimize the product.
Once our designs are finalized, we work with Merrow to optimize the production of our products. Most of the cutting of our products is done at Merrow. Parts of our line are sewn at their facility in Fall River (we are still developing these skills and capabilities), some products leave partially finished and the rest are 100% sewn in Lincoln. 100% of our products are sewn in the USA.
We hope to sew 100% of our product line in Lincoln by December of 2020.
