RE: The tariff classification of gloves from Sri Lanka.

Dear Mr. Hammons:

In your letter dated November 10, 1992, on behalf of Wells Lamont, you requested a classification ruling.

You have submitted two samples. The first sample, style 934 is a knit cotton garden glove. This item features closely spaced plastic pinhead size dots on the entire palm-side and back of the index finger. You indicate that this glove is 90% cotton and 10% plastic by weight. The essential character of this glove is imparted by the covered portion.

The second sample, style 946 is a 100% knit cotton children's garden glove. The item features an applied knit cuff.

The applicable subheading for styles 934 will be 6116.10.1720, HTS, which provides for gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: other: without fourchettes: cut and sewn from pre-existing machine-knit fabric that is impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: of vegetable fibers: other, subject to cotton restraints. The duty rate will be 25 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for style 946 will be 6116.92.6420, HTS, which provides for gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: made from pre-existing machine-knit fabric: without fourchettes, other. The duty rate will be 25 percent ad valorem.

Styles 934 and 946 fall within textile category designation 331. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Sri Lanka are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
