There are two quality problems related to Georgia cotton, according to a textile industry representative. One is the measured quality difference, with staple ranking high in this category. "The other one is the intangible, those things we don't measure, and uniformity is the key there," says South Bryan of Avondale Mills Inc. Avondale he says, has nothing in its contracts that prohibit the purchase of Georgia cotton. Turning to the current state of the U.S. textile industry, he says it is no secret that U.S. textile mills are in dire straits.
