Lost Trim & Component Factories : Apparel Industry Trims & Notions
Lost Apparel Industry Companies  Broken Links  Out of Business Fashion Companies  Merchandising

We typically remove companies from our website if their website links are no longer functioning properly.  However, we decided that some companies deserve a second chance.  The history of some of these companies should not simply be wiped away.  Even if they are now out of business, it would be nice to know which clothing & textile companies have existed.  It is very possible that some of these companies are still in business, but maybe their website address changed or the business changed name, location, phone, etc.

This section of the site is a temporary graveyard of companies for which we have lost contact.

It is very possible that these companies are out of business, but we are not certain.

If you find your company below, you are welcome to let us know and we can possibly re-instate your business into the proper section of our site.

We are removing the original website address & contact information that we had on record from the listings below.  If you know the proper contact information for any of these companies you are welcome to let us know.
