We work alongside and serve the needs of contractors who supply all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces with a wide range of engineered and customized woven and knit fabrics to meet specific requirements. Performance Textiles also certifies Berry Amendment Compliant fabrics ensuring that all fabrics are produced in the USA.
