Many corporations and organizations are looking for a way to show they care about the environment. Eco-friendly apparel has become a universal way to do that. It is relatively easy to recycle plastics. As a result you have companies such as South Carolina-based Unifi Corporation that makes yarn out of 100 percent recycled material. This yarn is incredibly flexible in its ability to take on different textures. Unifi has several customers who are using this yarn to support the sublimation marketplace. In this same vein of feel-good products, sublimation also reaches into the realm of madein-America apparel. Yes, domestic manufacturing is really happening. There are now several companies that offer performance apparel for sublimation made in the southeastern part of the United States (the historical powerhouse of textile production in the USA). While the cost may be higher, there is a market for domestically-made goods. February 2013 1/18/13 10:21 AM
