From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Emerson USA is a San Francisco based flag manufacturer. Founded in 1914, the company is the oldest surviving flag company in the State of California and the second oldest in the United States. It is one of San Francisco's last remaining textile manufacturers.[1]


San Francisco’s economy, although largely based on technology and tourism, was also once a major Textile manufacturing city.[2] Over the years however, textile manufacturers, such as Esprit de Corp. Designs, better known as Esprit, and Levi Strauss & Co., better known as Levi's, have largely left San Francisco due to the city’s high cost of doing business with the few remaining textile manufacturers.

One that has remained however, is Emerson USA, as the company is able to sustain itself within a community of business customers that advocate “buying local” and US flags that are “made in America.”[3] This gives the company a relatively rare niche market as the typical consumer continues to purchase increasingly larger amounts of textiles that are manufactured in Asia.[4]
