WASHINGTON — After two decades of consolidation in the U.S. textile industry, three textile lobbying and trade groups have agreed to merge and form a new association with a more unified and stronger voice in Washington.
Citing 30 years of “failed government trade policy” and contraction in the textile industry, the National Textile Association — the oldest textile trade association in the U.S. — said Wednesday that it has voted to cease operations and turn its assets and membership list over to the National Council of Textile Organizations. The merger will be effective Monday, according to NTA.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
