On behalf of American Design Industries, Managua, Nicaragua, and pursuant to the provisions of Section 203(o)(4) of the Dominican Republic-Central American-United States Free Trade Agreement (“DR-CAFTA”) Implementation Act (“the Act”) and the Federal Register Notice of March 21, 2007 published by the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, we submit this request regarding a modification to the list of fabrics, yarns and fibers not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the countries of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade agreement, and request that the subject fabrics be placed on a timely basis on the list in Annex 3.25 of the Agreement.

DETAILED PRODUCT INFORMATION
The fabric in question is denim classified under HTS subheading 5209.42.00 in which the complete fabric specifications are shown in the accompanying Attachment.

QUANTITY
American Design Industries requires that linear meters of the subject fabrics, be delivered to its facility within. American Design Industries wishes to use the fabrics in Nicaragua for the production and subsequent export to the United States of apparel items.

DUE DILIGENCE
We have contacted all textile mills in the Cafta DR region known to us to make fabrics similar to the subject fabrics and listed in detail in the Otexa website. None has indicated an ability to or interest in supplying these fabrics. We also contacted the three associations representing the U.S. textile industry and neither they nor any of their extensive number of members has communicated to us any interest in supplying the subject fabrics.

We contacted all US Suppliers under the OTEXA US Supplier directory website database for Apparel Fabrics in twill denim. We also sent inquiries to the national associations representing the textile industries of Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, and received no expressions of ability or interest in supplying the subject fabrics.

The information below specifies the firms and associations that were contacted with regard to whether they could make the subject fabrics described in the Attachment.
