Use of the @import directive allows for the composition of stylesheets using smaller and more reusable chunks of code. Unfortunately, the @import directive triggers an HTTP request for the resource when encountered by the CSS interpreter which can result in decreased overall site performance.

@import 'my-other-styles.css';
@import 'my-print-styles.css' print;
@import 'my-tv-styles' projection, tv;

How do I fix this ?

Concatenate the contents of your stylesheets into one file and include that instead of multiple files.
