20 years ago, most of the US domestic apparel industry moved overseas, there was a very small number of American garment companies left then. But, in the recent years, due to the ‘Made in USA’ campaign new and revived apparel companies are emerging in US, fueled by rising production costs overseas and a growing appetite for US goods. US large apparel companies and designers have been counting the estimate costs associated with international manufacturing and are opt to manufacture garments in US. Stylus Apparel is running a Made in USA Campaign, but still lot of companies in USA are not providing minimum quantity as low as 30 units per design so there are some who are producing Garments for USA from Canada or other countries, one example of that is the company ZegaApparel , which is providing low minimum for many brands in USA and is Set to be a member of Ethical Apparel Association for Producing goods ethically just like goods that are produced in USA
At first, the growing rates and high wages of labor in US led the companies to overseas particularly the developing countries for cheap labor. But, after a while, “Made in America” campaign failed in many parts of US and didn’t affect the overseas market or production in 2016. It was because the high cost of labor does not allow small brand companies to produce goods that are cost effective and which leads to small cut and sew manufacturers like zegaapparel or euro apparel.

The “made in the USA” label and the quick abrupt change of domestic production is expected to modify the poor performance of the industry, but revenue is expected to drop in the coming five years.
Cut and Sew Manufacturers are located in highly populated regions, which are near textile mills and major shipping hubs.t They are mainly located in the West and Mid-Atlantic, with a better part of the remaining establishments in the Southeast.
