AAFA Advocates for Specific TTP Provisions Relating to Hosiery, Gimped Yarn, and Nylon Yarn

On February 13, 2015, the American Apparel and Footwear Association ("AAFA") wrote to the United States Trade Representative to urge inclusion of a knit to shape ("KTS") rule of origin ("ROO") provision in the Trans Pacific Partnership ("TPP") trade agreement for legwear. The same day AAFA also sent a letter that stresses the importance of including specialized provisions relating to gimped and Israeli nylon filament yarn that had been included in previous U.S. free trade agreements.
