The layers of material are sewn together with a woven textile binder around the edges. It is held onto the face by a narrow elastic band.

The applicable subheading for the sleep mask will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

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