The "eyeglass holder" is constructed of nylon tubular braided textile cord with a textile material frog attached at each end.

The samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the "dusting glove" will be 6307.90.9490, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
