    HICKORY, N.C. - ABC’s "Made in America" team discovered before the last Olympics that the opening ceremony uniforms for the United States were made in China.

    Ralph Lauren pledged to make all future uniforms in the U.S. after the uproar during the last Olympics opening ceremony.

    There are more than 40 American partners designing, sourcing and manufacturing these uniforms in the U.S. and as a result more than $1 billion and hundreds of jobs now staying here.

    The wool was transported from Oregon to Nazareth, Penn., to be spun and then to Hickory, where it was dyed.

    The cotton is then shipped to California, where it's knitted together.
