Online PR News – 18-February-2011 – – Lubbock, Texas – Although the textile industry at one time was one of the country's leading manufacturing sectors, many companies and jobs have moved overseas. ForeignTRADEX, the US-European Industrial Trade Portal wants to bring back those companies with the launch of its marketplace for Industrial Textiles & Fabrics Suppliers at As the publisher of numerous industrial guides, directories and forums for the manufacturing community the company believes it can have a positive impact attracting foreign buyers of American textiles and fabrics such as wool, raw & washed cotton, burlap, polyester, yarn, felt, acrylic, silk and other synthetic, animal based, vegetable based and finished fabrics.

Logan Thompson, spokesman for, said the marketplace includes an independent
Industrial Fabrics & Textiles Guide at which is suitable for manufacturers of various clothing, rugs & carpets, burlap bags, felt & foam, tarpaulins & canvas products as well as footwear, furniture cushioning, automotive interiors, linen, geotextiles, fashion wear, bedding, technical textiles and other items made from cotton, wool, polyester, felt, silk and nylon materials. According to Thompson, over 44 textile & fabric manufacturers have been added to the site from regions all over the world with emphasis on promoting US-based suppliers.

“It will take enormous effort to bring back jobs to the U.S. in the textiles industry but the entire team at ForeignTRADEX is committed to such a feat even if it makes a little change it will be a start in the right direction,” said Thompson. After being asked about the potential of the new marketplace he went on to say, “Look, it's unlikely the textile & fabrics manufacturing industry in the United States with ever reach the enormous production output it once enjoyed when practically everything a person wore, every carpet, tarp and other man made item in the country had the 'Made in the USA' label. However, that is not to say the industry is dead here because it's quite evident the country still has significant potential to produce and export a larger share of textiles needed by companies and people all over the world. Indeed, and it network is committed to that challenge.”
