WASHINGTON — The U.S. has embargoed cotton trousers from Bangladesh, after all of its quota in those categories was filled last Friday.
The embargo will be the first of the year on apparel and textile products and falls fairly early in the year. Bangladesh’s quota limit on women’s, girls’, men’s and boys’ cotton trousers — a category in high demand — stands at 3.77 million dozens, according to Donald Foote, director of the agreements division at the Commerce Department’s Office of Textiles and Apparel.
