Requires the product, as well as the package in which it is contained, to be labeled as to country of origin.
Requires catalog sales descriptions and other advertisements for textile and wool products to contain country of origin information.
Requires that the identification label on imported textile fiber or wool products be affixed to the most conspicuous place on the inner side of the product.
