CCI Encourages Asian Apparel Makers To Use U S Cotton

CCI Encourages AsianApparel Makers To Use U.S. CottonCotton Council International (CCI), Washington, recently brought 14 Asian apparel manufacturers to the United States to encourage them to use U.S.-made cotton textiles in apparel produced in their plants in the Caribbean Basin. The companies located in Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Guatemala and El Salvador visited textile mills, cotton harvesting and ginning facilities, and Cotton Incorporateds Cary, N.C.-based research facility.The tour was organized as part of the 2002 Sourcing Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI) Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agricultures Section 108 Program, Cotton Incorporated and participating U.S. textile mills. Participating mills include Ameritex, AMTEC/Tuscarora, Buhler Quality Yarns, Four Leaf Textiles, Frontier Spinning Mills, HarrietandHenderson Yarns, National Textiles, Parkdale Mills, Ramtex, Spectrum Dyed Yarns, TNS Mills and Swift Spinning Mills.The tour went very well, said Vaughn Jordan, CCIs international program director and director, CBIandMexico. We definitely changed some minds. Asian manufacturers own a majority of the apparel mills in the Caribbean Basin and have been using Asian materials in their production. I think now well be seeing more U.S.-made cotton content in the apparel they produce there. November 2002
