AFFOA: Advanced Functional Fabrics of America

Our clothes help define us, yet the fabrics we wear have remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. Recent breakthroughs in fiber materials and manufacturing processes will soon allow us to design and produce fabrics that see, hear, sense, communicate, store and convert energy, regulate temperature, monitor health and change color — the dawn of a “fabric revolution.” A national non-profit backed by industry, academia, government, and venture capital, AFFOA will accelerate widespread commercialization of highly functional fabrics.

You are invited to join the AFFOA National Fabric Innovation Network, as an integral part of our team creating a Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Revolutionary Fibers & Textiles. AFFOA Members will spearhead projects positioned to define the “fabric revolution,” the future of fiber and textile manufacturing in the US. Our next event, Industry Day at MIT on June 16, provides an opportunity for your company to contribute to and benefit from advances across the entire fabric supply chain for first-to-market manufacturing opportunities.
