The CAA was found in April 2006 drawing from a broad and strong member base. Though many believed that the industry was too segmented to make this possible,leaders of the industry forged ahead and together with the support of apparel manufacturers,distributors and agents formed CAA - an organization that represents every segment of the industry regardless of company size,location,product-line and distribution.
CAA is a trade association representing apparel manufacturers,distributors and agents who compete in the market place.
CAA's mission is to help create an environment in which the Tamilnadu apparel industry could operate, compete and profit in the global economy. The result of this effort is this organization represented by approx. 80% of the apparel industry of Tamil Nadu.
