About AFA

The American Flock Association was established in 1984.

AFA members include manufacturers of roll-to-roll coated textiles, papers, and films as well as coaters of three-dimensional objects and printers of apparel decoration and graphics art products. Industry suppliers are a key sector of the membership. The AFA is affiliated with the National Council of Textile Organizations, a non-profit trade organization representing a large number of textile manufacturers and industry suppliers with operations in North America.
