On December 23, 2011 the Apparel News posted an article about US Textile and Apparel Shipments for 2011.
According to the article, "Apparel and textile imports were up a little more than 15 percent, totaling $97.2 billion during the first 10 months of this year compared with the same period last year. Those imports have been in positive territory for the last two years after tumbling 13.5 percent in 2009."

The Apparel News article goes on to state that, "China, which sent $40 billion in apparel and textiles to the United States from January through October, still accounts for 40 percent of all U.S. apparel and textiles imports." This a rate that has held fairly steady over the years.

The textile news article also mentions an interesting fact about textiles from Vietnam. They mention that Vietnam has made great strides as an apparel powerhouse, and they are now ranking as the No. 2 supplier to the United States when it comes to clothing.
