Gap Explains

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

After yesterday's reveal that Gap's "Made in USA" FEED bags were, well, really "Made in China," the folks over at The Feast got in touch with the people at FEED HQ. They had this to say: "We secured a partnership in June and had to have the bags ready by the end of August. We would have loved to have all bags made stateside, but with that tight of a production time, it would have been virtually impossible to secure the entire bag run in the U.S. Nowhere on the denim bags does it say 'Made in the U.S.A.'"
