Made in Bulgaria

Welcome everyone to Made in Bulgaria! It is amazing the calibre of designers who have their goods produced in Bulgaria. You may have already heard about Lalo Orna artisan jewelry, but did you realize that such designers as Karl Lagerfeld and Perry Ellis would have their designs made in Bulgaria?

I've been researching items made in Bulgaria for a few years and find it interesting that even Tommy Hilfiger has had items made in Bulgaria. In this lens, you may be surprised at who else is on this list!

By the way, the significance of this page to Squidoo lensmasters? Oh, simple! This was one of my first instances of writing in a series of related topics! In March 2006 I initiated the "Made in" series of lenses to celebrate all that is Eastern European. I initially wrote about Made in Hungary and Made in Romania to celebrate my Eastern European heritage.

Welcome to Made in Bulgaria -- Francesco Biasia, Karl Lagerfeld, Lacoste and Perry Ellis! I hope you enjoy your visit today. Thanks for dropping by.

By the way, YOU may be surprised. Check out my "Made in" series of pages. Made in Bulgaria, Made in Czech Republic, Made in Hungary, Made in Poland, and Made in Romania.
