Join us in our efforts to support medical personnel.

In light of this pandemic and shortage of necessary medical supplies, we have pivoted towards making PPE.


Wearbest Weavers, LLC, a subsidiary of Swavelle, is a technical textile producer located in Garfield, New Jersey. Wearbest has long supplied fabrics to the health-care industry–with microbe and bacterial resistant upholstery product used in hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

As a U.S. based mill it is our duty and mission to support the committed healthcare workers on the frontline of this pandemic. Refocusing our technology and expertise we are now weaving fabrics for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This fabric is suitable for:

  • medical gowns
  • privacy curtains
  • face masks*

Wearbest is capable of producing a minimum of 20,000 yards of medical grade fabric per week. This can promptly be fabricated into protective gear to assist the front line of our medical community during this unprecedented time.

We are looking for partners to support the cut & sew portion of this initiative. Together we can contribute to the safety of the dedicated personnel fighting the global pandemic. To obtain medical fabrics contact:
