La Griffe Internationale, a Tunisian manufacturer and supplier of garment labels to worldwide brands, is expanding its presence in the US market.

The company makes an extensive range of labels and hangtags - including forgery-proof labels to protect the integrity of valuable brands - for brand names produced throughout the Middle East such as Adidas, Gap, Levi's, Lee Cooper and Wrangler.

"We've grown at an exceptional rate in the past two years," says company president and founder, Slahedine Ktari, adding that the company wants to continue this growth by providing its labels to marketers of US-based brands.

Based in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, La Griffe works closely with textile manufacturers and finishing operations in Tunisia, but also exports directly to apparel manufacturers in the Middle East, Europe, and western Africa.

The company provides its own production lines to offer Jacquard weaving, offset and screen-printing, transfer printing, hot stamp, ultrasonic cutting, and laser die cutting.
