GSP Imports: Table linens and home d├ęcor from India, Indonesia, and the Philippines

GSP expiration forced us to delay two new hires and the purchase of much needed business software. We lost $1.7 million in sales as many clients went directly to factories overseas.

Founded in 2000, Leila’s Linens offers a wide arrange of home décor products. Leila’s sources globally utilizing GSP to keep costs low and pass savings on to the consumer.

When GSP expired, Leila’s Linens had to raise prices and lost some major clients. Lower volumes made it hard to service smaller clients, too. Leila’s Linens delayed all major expenditures, including new workers and software systems.

With GSP reinstated, Leila’s Linens hired 2 new workers and made other investments in the business. Continued GSP benefits are extremely important to Leila’s Linens’ future success.
