Style # JS001 will be manufactured in the Philippines in girls' sizes 2T-4T, 4-6X, and 7-16.

The sample is being returned to you.

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, with its control number, should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
