Diamond Brand has been handcrafting sustainable outdoor gear since 1881. More than 140 years later, the company is still at it — and now you can see how they do it. Starting this Friday, July 12, Diamond Brand’s headquarters at 145 Cane Creek Industrial Park Rd., Ste. 100 in Fletcher will be open to the public on Friday afternoons for a behind-the-scenes look at how the products are made.

The new Factory Fridays will offer tours of the factory and an up-close view of the manufacturing process — which is about to change. The company is switching up its product offerings to focus on crafting sustainably made canvas wall tents and upcycled bags. Beyond touring the facility, folks can shop deals on overstock inventory and retired products.

Bonus: The first 25 people to attend this week’s Factory Friday will get a swag bag filled with Diamond Brand products.
