The applicable textile category is 859. This merchandise is subject to visa requirements based on international textile trade agreements. 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.

Your sample will be returned under separate cover.

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