Michigan Apparel Company is Rooted in Royal Oak
MI Map, LLC mittens are designed in Royal Oak and manufactured in the Great Lakes State.
Mi Map, LLC is an apparel company whose focus is to promote Michigan and its unique features in the form of clothing and other products. The products are designed in Royal Oak and manufactured in Michigan. For each item sold, 10 percent of the net profit goes towards helping people in both peninsulas.
Mi Map, LLC was formed in 2010 and began production in December 2011. The first product offering is the most obvious—a mitten.
“The concept initially came to me on December 23, 2009 while I was watching Devin Scillian talk about the red 2010 Olympic mittens” said Christine Chubenko, CEO, product designer and longtime Royal Oak resident. “I saw them in my head exactly as they are now produced but bringing them from prototype to production was a long process.”
“It’s imperative to me that Mi Map, LLC products be made in Michigan because I want to do my small part to keep this state moving forward. Michiganians are wonderful, colorful and resilient people – exactly who I want on my team.” said Chubenko.
