Our Responsibility

Royal Apparel is a privately owned company operating corporately out of Hauppauge, NY. We operate multiple manufacturing facilities in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In addition, we also have headquarters and warehousing facilities in Hauppauge, NY and fabric operations  in Allentown, PA. Royal Apparel facilities and vendors shall comply with all applicable laws including local and national regulations as well as voluntary industry standards. 

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

The mission of Royal Apparel has been to produce Made in the USA, eco-friendly apparel at the highest quality for consumers. Over the past few years, Royal Apparel has tripled in size; allowing us to reinvest into the company. We have been able to expand our headquarters, add a new fabric facility with a robotic cutter and a new ERP System. Not to mention, adding new members to our team. As time keeps ticking, more and more Americans (80% as of 2020) have been willing to pay more for the guarantee that what they're buying is durable and American made.
 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We're committed to creating a safe environment for our employees (and our planet). All Royal Apparel facilities comply with environmental laws and regulations. Low impact, fiber reactive dyes that do not contain any heavy metal or toxic substances are used alongside recycled water and sustainable materials like organic cotton, viscose bamboo, viscose hemp and rpet. As new technologies develop, we're committed to offering high-quality eco-friendly products.
