About Us

The United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) represents the fashion industry: textile and apparel brands, retailers, importers, and wholesalers based in the United States and doing business globally. Founded in 1989 as the United States Association of Importers of Textiles & Apparel with the goal of eliminating the global apparel quota system, USFIA now works to eliminate the tariff and non-tariff barriers that impede the industry’s ability to trade freely and create economic opportunities in the United States and abroad. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., USFIA is the most respected voice for the fashion industry in front of the U.S. government as well as international governments and stakeholders. With constant, two-way communication, USFIA staff and counsel serve as the eyes and ears of our members in Washington and around the world, enabling them to stay ahead of the regulatory challenges of today and tomorrow. Through our publications, educational events, and networking opportunities, USFIA also connects with key stakeholders across the value chain including U.S. and international service providers, suppliers, and industry groups.

Cotton Farming: Want Style, Sustainability? Consider Cotton.

By Julia K. Hughes

While our members have always been committed to sourcing at the highest standards, today they are particularly focused on ethical sourcing as a critical component of business operations. USFIA facilitates discussions on how to source the right product at the right price – and today, that’s a product manufactured in a safe, sustainable and responsible way.

But, we’re in the business of fashion – so, in today’s competitive market, that product must also meet customers’ standards for fit, function and style. USFIA member companies source prod- ucts made with every type of fiber imaginable. If you’re looking at the whole equation – including sustainability, fit, function and style – cotton will remain an essential fiber.
