Venezuela ranked second with Peruvian textiles and clothing exports amounting to $44 million, followed by Ecuador with $12 million, and Colombia and Brazil with $11 million each.

The highest exports of textiles and clothing were made from the Peruvian capital city of Lima, accounting for 77 percent of the overall textile and apparel exports made from the country during the first two months of 2014. Arequipa ranked second accounting for 9 percent, followed by Ica with 8 percent and Callao with 4 percent.

In January 2014, textiles and clothing exports from Peru totaled US$ 130 million, registering a rise of 2.8 percent, compared to the same month in 2013, as per the Peruvian Ministry of Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR).
