Made in Virginia Awards 2014

Quality products—made with skill acquired only by the hard work of doing something again and again—show their true mettle years from the day they are bought, like when the knife sharpened hundreds of times continues to cut just as keenly as it did the first time it was used, or when a farm table remains as solid and steady as it was the day it was delivered. Pride. Attention to detail. Artistry. These are the things that make some products stand out. Here, we present nearly two dozen of our favorites this year—a celebration of sport, style, home, food and drink, all made in Virginia by craftspeople who really know how to do the thing right.
