50 years ago 95% of clothing worn in the USA was made in the USA.

Today only 3% of what we wear is made here at home.*

The AJF was founded to create jobs in the U.S. by:



1. Linking retail and industrial buyers with vetted and qualified U.S. textile and apparel manufacturing plants to provide full-package production for both private label and AJF’s branded product line(s).


2. Locating and redeveloping ailing facilities to bring them into compliance

with current standards.


3. Developing new domestic factories based on regional employment

needs and local government participation. All new and redeveloped locations

are to offer:


  • Employee ownership.

  • Health care opportunities.

  • On site childcare for locations of a certain size.
