Advanced Functional Fabrics of America
SEAMS Partners with AFFOA

At our recent SEAMS Fall Conference, we had the opportunity to hear from Dr.Tairan Wang, COO of AFFOA (Advanced Functional Fabric of America). As we learned from his exciting and well-received presentation, the core element of AFFOA's approach is to facilitate a domestic "Made in America" manufacturing capability in advanced fabrics based on US innovation. 

We are very excited to announce that SEAMS and AFFOA have decided to become members of each other's associations. To further the collaboration between the organizations and members, SEAMS will represent our members within AFFOA by communicating all questions and comments that arise from SEAMS members on this exciting opportunity.

The AFFOA mission is to enable a manufacturing-based revolution by transforming of traditional fibers, yarns, and textiles into highly sophisticated integrated and networked devices and systems and facilitate the conversion of the textile industry into an Intellectual Property (IP)-differentiated, value-added, high-tech industry.  To learn more about AFFOA, visit join.affoa.org.
