New Textile Glossaries Expand FabricLink Network

TARZANA, CA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  The FabricLink Network, with nearly a thousand pages of educational information on two websites, (trade-to-consumer) and (trade-to-trade), launches new Textile Glossaries sections on both sites.

The FabricLink Network has always been known for its rich content. But now, one of the most frequently visited areas of both websites, the 'Dictionaries' section, in the left-hand navigation, will be a pinnacle resource for even more educational information.

"We are pleased to be able to incorporate new Glossaries, developed by the California Fashion Association (CFA) and the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD), into the FabricLink Network. The new Glossaries expand the already valuable resources on our sites," states Kathy Swantko, president of the FabricLink Network. "These Glossaries are also just two of several new additions we're currently planning!"

CFA's Glossary of International Trade Terms ( and a The Glossary of Environmental Issues ( along with NAUMD's Uniform Glossary ( have been added to the already popular 'Textile Dictionary,' 'Performance Fabric Glossary,' and the fun and witty 'Fabricisms' in the 'Dictionaries' section of both network sites.

CFA, an organization dedicated to promoting the global recognition of the 'Created in California' image, is known to be a clearinghouse for textile/apparel information. The "International Trade Terms Glossary," which covers issues like CAFTA, CBI, NAFTA, as well as everything in between and beyond, is of great value for companies working in, or researching opportunities within the international market.

The second Glossary from CFA, the 'Glossary of Environmental Issues,' is an essential resource for those invested in preserving the earth, while creating an environmentally friendly planet now and for future generations.

Important to the uniform and career apparel market, comes the "Uniform Glossary" from NAUMD. This source of information relates to fibers/yarns, fabrics, dyeing & finishing, garment construction, and on FabricLink a "Glossary of Care Instruction Terms" ( to assist consumers in properly caring for Career Apparel and Uniforms in to maximize the life of their garments.
