AMERICUS — Tepuy Activewear announces its membership in the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s Authentic Georgia initiative that is growing pride and awareness throughout Georgia.

“I am very excited Tepuy Activewear has become part of Authentic Georgia. We proudly design, manufacture, and distribute our products from Americus, the heart of Southwest Georgia,” says Elena Carné CEO/fashion designer of Tepuy Activewear. “We embody the diversity and values Authentic Georgia represents. We have embarked on the journey of promoting and selling our Georgia-made brand around the country, at different fitness events and conferences, and it has been well received. The question always made us smile: ‘Are your products really handcrafted in Americus, Georgia?’”

Tepuy Activewear is a vibrant, fashion forward U.S. brand committed to excellent quality, adaptable performance, and ethical fashion. It is a women-owned and managed design company, striving to manufacture affordable, functional, fashionable activewear.

The company joins a growing list of diverse Authentic Georgia companies, such as: Textron Specialized Vehicles of Augusta, Byrd Cookie Company of Savannah, Rev Coffee Roasters of Atlanta, Red Brick Brewing of Atlanta, Southern Proper of Atlanta, the Okefenokee Swamp Park of South Georgia, and others.

“Our goal with Authentic Georgia is to improve the brand awareness of goods, locations, and businesses operating in Georgia in order to support a robust business community and to better grow our economy,” said Chris Clark, president and CEO of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. “By promoting and showing the benefits of buying Georgia, we’re helping businesses throughout the state connect with more consumers, while achieving growth and stimulating our economy. In turn, consumers who seek out Georgia businesses and services value the Authentic Georgia brand and take pride in helping to support the businesses, people and places that make our state great.”
