New Trump tariffs: Here’s what impacts home textiles HFPA updates on latest retaliation threat New York – The Home Fashion Products Association ( HFPA ) has issued an alert to members in the wake of the latest Trump administration announcement on tariffs. On Tuesday, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative ( USTR ) released an extensive list of proposed 10% tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, a follow-up to two previous tariff actions. While finished home textiles did not make the latest list, feathers and down used for stuffing did. HFPA legal counsel Robert Leo suggested in the alert that members consider filing comments with the USTR about the inclusion of those items, which some home textiles suppliers import to fill pillows and comforters in the U.S. Although the new list included a class of terry towel materials, the subheading number is not the one assigned to terry bath towels and kitchen towels, said Leo, who is a partner at Meeks, Sheppard, Leo & Pillsbury . In the home furnishings space, the list includes mattresses, furniture and lighting, as well as upholstery fabrics, carpets, particleboard, MDF, plywood, wood marquetry and inlaid wood used in furniture production. There are plenty of textile components on the proposed China import tariff list – cotton yarn, cotton waste, cotton woven fabrics, viscose, nylon yarn, polyester yarn, hemp, jute and vegetable fibers, among them – raising alarm in the apparel community. The USTR will hold a public hearing Aug. 20-23 at the U.S. International Trade Commission. The deadline for filing to appear and testify at a public hearing is July 26, and written comments are due Aug.
