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.
