WASHINGTON — Volatility has crept into the U.S. apparel and textile import market after a long period of stability.
Two of the most steady powerhouse suppliers — China and Bangladesh — saw substantial declines in February imports, with market share being taken mostly by Asian neighbors India and Vietnam. China’s declines have been attributed to its desire to manufacture more for its domestic market and the rising costs of sourcing there, while Bangladesh continues to deal with the backlash of factory tragedies over the last 18 months.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
