ABOUT AATCC CALIFORNIA SECTION

AATCC is a global, member-driven, not-for-profit, organization, serving textiles professionals since 1921.  Today, the Association provides test method development, quality control materials, education, and networking for a global audience of apparel and textile/materials professionals.

 

The California chapter of AATCC was formed by apparel and textiles professionals who volunteer their time to create opportunities for colleagues to network, learn and support positive change in the industry.   We have 7 focus pillars to include Color Perception, Regulatory & Compliance, Chemical Applications, Technology/Wearable Electronics, Education/Student Engagement, Laboratory Testing, and Sustainability. 

 

This term our theme is Sustainability and all of our events are devoted to addressing Sustainability issues and opportunities.  A sampling of our past events include presentations on natural fiber systems; innovative new materials; natural dyeing; safer chemicals; sustainability impacts on apparel regulations; e-waste; and a day-sail out of southern California where participants collected ocean samples to learn about ocean plastics pollution.  

 

Our California members are diverse and include employees at large apparel companies such as The North Face, Patagonia, Inc., Levi Strauss & Co., and The Gap, Inc., as well as entrepreneurs, designers, educators, students, and manufacturers.
