Gerbing liner

I was looking at a used Gerbing jacket liner on eBay today. And very clearly on the neck label it said "Made in China". All as I want to know is: How long has this been going on??? I had mistakenly believed that their products were made in America with foreign-made fabrics.

My Gerbings liner has a "birthdate" of May 2006, made in China. I purchased it November 2006.
Works great as a regular liner( non heated) down to 50 degrees and then heated below that, under my BMW Santiago jacket for 9 months of riding. At hot temps, I use the BMW airflow jacket.

Mine says "Washington." I don't see any other tags listing a foreign country.

The main label at the neck doesn,t say much excedpt for the name of the manufacturer

The real important tags are on the inside near the bottom on the left side. I have 3 labels
1-birthdate
2- thinsulate and
3- care label( this one has the made in china on it)

My tags are a little different. There is the neck label and the three little tags are attached on the inner seam on the left side.
