About

At the AAPN, we believe that doing business in the USA and the Americas is easier, faster, safer, and just plain better – and since the AAPN was founded in 1981 we have become the only international trade association connecting the entire textile/apparel supply chain of the Western Hemisphere.

We invite you to explore this blog for impactful resources, insightful articles, and personal reflections and ideas that will inspire action on the topics you care about.

Here you’ll find new ways to connect with AAPN and our thriving community – and even create valuable new business relationships through our Sourcing Directory.  We suggest that you visit frequently, as you’ll always find something new!
