How do small to mid-sized textile producers remain competitive, access markets and collaborate to support and learn from each other?


Our vision

The Carolina Textile District will become the most collaborative network of textile producers in the US that meet modern demand and empower workers. Today, U.S. apparel manufacturing is doing better than expected. Almost 8 in 10 U.S. consumers say they would rather buy an American-made product than an imported one, and more than 60% say they’re even willing to pay 10% more. Reshoring Initiative data shows that it ranks number six in industries that have reshored with 17,166 jobs by 287 companies since 2010.
