Factory tours allow community members and those interested in apparel and manufacturing to get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes at one of the remaining garment manufacturing facilities in the United States.
"If you thought that the garment industry in Baltimore was a relic of the past, think again! Since Fashions Unlimited was founded in 1976, this local company been manufacturing clothing for over forty years and its South Baltimore factory is still going as strong as ever.
With sewing machines and a skilled workforce of designers, cutters, and sewers, Fashions Unlimited produces a range of products from bathing suits for start-up businesses to sportswear for Fila, Nike, and Champion. The company even makes jackets for Mount Everest climbers and high-tech jerseys for European soccer leagues so that coaches can monitor everything in real-time from a player’s heartbeat to her waning acceleration in the second half of the game."
