OBXMADE is the only registered trademark celebrating products that are locally made. The Outer Banks is known as a premier tourist destination, a place where people come to get away from it all and enjoy life in its natural state. While tourism is the #1 driver of our local economy and understanding that the commercial fishing industry has a long-standing history, the Outer Banks region has grown from those roots to include small manufacturers (boat building, screen printing, cabinet making, etc.), locally branded restaurants, retail shops and more. Whether the product is big or small, handmade or mass produced, OBXMADE rewards the ingenuity, passion, talent and time that goes into each one.
The Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce is an advocate for business in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. A regional organization, the Outer Banks Chamber serves Dare County, Currituck County and Ocracoke Island with a membership of 900 businesses and organizations.
