Fruits of the Loom
Have you guys seen this NYTimes article, Fruits of the Loom yet? It's pretty amazing and a colorful glimpse into textile manufacturing in the US. According to the Times, "Christopher Payne has spent much of the past few years photographing more than 20 of the mills that make up what’s left of America’s textile industry.

Pretty crazy.
