Customs seizures from Asia

The LA Times reports today on 15,000 pairs of fake Paul Frank pajamas worth nearly $100,000 confiscated by Long Beach Port Customs officers shipped from Indonesia. While Indonesia has a substantial apparel manufacturing industry it is not as well known as China or Thailand for apparel fakes. Asia is still the major source of fake goods into US and Europe though as the US Customs data from 2010 shows. The major ASEAN countries for seziures in 2010 were Malaysia and Vietnam.
