Apparel manufacturing in the United States began declining in the early '80s as America began abdicating manufacturing, moving production overseas. Today, it is making a comeback in the states, alongside the technical foundations. Evolution St. Louis is paving the way to bring innovation and manufacturing back to the U. S. as the premier whole garment, high-tech knitting facility.
In this episode of Clothing Coulture, host Bret Schnitker and Emily Lane speak with Jon Lewis, CEO/ Co-Founder of Evolution St. Louis. They discuss the history of manufacturing in the United States, how Evolution St. Louis is changing the game with their knitting process, along with their partnership with STOLL, one of the major 3D knitting factories, and more.
