WASHINGTON — Apparel and textile imports to the U.S. fell 1.3 percent in September, as weak demand drove a year-over-year decline in imports of holiday merchandise from seven of the top 10 suppliers, according to a report on Thursday from the Commerce Department’s Office of Textiles and Apparel.
Combined apparel and textile shipments declined to 4.8 billion square meter equivalents in the month compared to a year earlier, with apparel imports down 0.9 percent to 2.3 billion SME and textile shipments falling 1.6 percent to 2.5 billion SME.
