Dear Ms. Bahena:

In your letter dated November 6, 1995, received in our office on November 9, 1995, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Kyowa Textiles USA Inc. Samples were submitted for review with your request.

The shoulder warmer is a textile article with one short sleeve, covers only one shoulder of the wearer. The article is held in place at the waist by means of an elasticized textile band and velcro closure.

The applicable subheading for the * will be *, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for *. The duty rate will be *.
