New York City-made clothing barely visible among garments sold in the United States

Posted by LDonia on 09/06/2013

If it's friday, then we at the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) are celebrating Made in the USA Fashion. Today's manufacturing fact keeps in that theme.

But there's reason for optimism: Save the Garment Center was founded in 2007 to help keep and create garment manufacturing jobs in the Big Apple. Additionally, fahion designers like Nanette Lepore continue to vocally and publicly support American manufacturing.

Check out Save the Garment Center's website for more information, or to learn how to help keep clothing Made in the USA.

And don't forget to check out our other manufacturing facts!
