The Longaberger Co. recently announced a partnership with Niagara Ceramics for production of its Woven Traditions pattern of pottery pieces. Longaberger will make the pottery in a 300,000-sq-ft facility–Longaberger® Pottery Works–located at Niagara Ceramics in Buffalo, N.Y. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was scheduled to take place on May 20.

“This is a historic and exciting step forward in our mission to create more American jobs and to support American craftsmanship,” said Tami Longaberger, CEO. “While Longaberger baskets have always been made in America, bringing pottery to U.S.-made is a major milestone for the company.”

“When Tami challenged us to bring everything in our line back to Made in America, we knew we needed to start with pottery,” said Mike Trempe, president and COO of Longaberger. “What we didn’t know was whether we could find the right domestic partner to make it possible for us to become our own pottery maker. We’re thrilled to have found the skills we need here in Buffalo.”
