The National Union of Knitwear, Footwear and Apparel Trades or KFAT is a British Trades Union with a membership of around 20,000 representing workers employed, as the name suggests, in the knitwear, textiles, hosiery, footwear, leather, and gloving industries. The Union was formed 1991 by the merger of the National Union of Hosiery and Knitwear Workers and the National Union of the Footwear, Leather and Allied Trades.

It now describes itself as the "family friendly trade union" and as "the specialist organisation for workers in manufacturing, retail and logistics"; which means that with the decline of the British textile industry it is keen to expand its horizons.
