RE: The tariff classifications of a Babies' Cotton Knit Kick-In Bag, and an Infants' Cotton Twill Cocoon from Peru

Dear Ms. Schreus:

In your letter dated March 3, 1998, you requested tariff classification rulings for Babies' Cotton Knit Kick-In Bags and Cotton Twill Cocoons for Infants. Both items would be imported from Peru. You provided one sample of each article for examination. Both samples will be returned to you.

The Babies' Cotton Knit Kick-In Bag is a pear shaped garment. Two shoulder straps form the designated openings for the head and arms at the top of the item. Two metal snaps are affixed to each strap for closure and comfort. The lower portion of the article is formed into a wide bag which is hemmed at the sides and bottom. The garment also features a front zipper. Both the printed shell and the plain fabric lining are made from 100% Cotton Knit fabric.

The inside lining is quilted to 100% polyester padding. You state the Babies' Kick-In Bag will be imported in sizes 0-6 months.

The Infants' 100% Cotton Cocoon is a snug fitting, hooded bag. The front opening is secured with three matching self-fabric ties. Both the printed twill shell and the plain knit fleece lining are made from 100% Cotton fabric. The sack is not stuffed with filling material.

The applicable subheading for the Babies' Cotton Knit Kick-In Bag will be 6111.20.6040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Babies' garments and clothing accessories, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Other: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 8.4%.
