WASHINGTON — Wholesale prices for domestically produced women’s and girls’ apparel rose 0.3 percent in April, giving manufacturers some more flexibility, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Producer Price Index released Thursday.
Prices for U.S.-made apparel and textiles have been falling for years because of import pressures. The labor department has overhauled the PPI to fully capture growing segments such as services, and does not provide year-over-year cost comparisons because many of the textile and apparel price categories were reclassified.
