pro:Americas Annual Conference

AAPN talks hemispheric strategies, technology coming out of pandemic

The Americas Apparel Producers’ Network (AAPN) had to forego its pro:Americas Annual Conference again this year, at least in person, but the group recently was able to attract a full house in a dynamic, virtual format that featured subject matter experts covering several pertinent topics.

 

Putting together the pieces of a hemispheric strategy – the primary goal of the AAPN being to connect the players of the Americas – was the order of the day. To that end, several speakers offered insights relevant to that mission before a group of nearly 200 attendees.

‘HEMPREPRENEUR’

Claire Crunk launches Trace Femcare, sees great promise in natural hygiene product

It took burnout, a lot of soul searching and numerous lightbulb moments for Claire Crunk to find her way into the realm of hemp fiber. But here she is … on her way, perhaps, to building a successful niche and potentially large business and a fulfilling career in the hemp world.

 

A world that’s far away from the one she had spent her 10-year career, as a nurse practitioner, until 2018.

 

Crunk launched Southeast Hemp Fiber four years ago, which led her down a path to found a company, Trace Femcare, created to produce a hemp tampon that is expected to be the only U.S.-grown hemp fiber brand, she said.
