The "BodyBlanket" is octagonal shaped and is made of 100 percent cotton terrycloth fabric. It has four large pockets that are held closed by strips similar to the VELCRO loop brand fastener, a drawstring around its perimeter, a shoulder strap for carrying, and eight securing hooks.

3. A sample swatch and descriptive literature representing the material used for the manufacturing of a "TVisor". It is made of woven nylon fabric with lycra spandex. The frame is constructed of polycarbonate tubing held together with 1/8 inch diameter bungy cord.

The applicable subheading for the "BodyBlanket" and "TVisor" will be 6307.90.9986, 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.
