The submitted samples are butterfly chair covers in two styles. Style #1661 is made of 55% cotton canvas/45% acrylic pile. Style #1662 is made of 55% cotton canvas/45% polyester pile. The chair covers are designed to be placed onto butterfly chair frames. In their imported condition, the chair covers are identifiable furniture parts.

The applicable subheading for chair covers will be 9401.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for seats (other than those of heading 9402), whether or not convertible into beds, and parts thereof: parts: other: other. The rate of duty will be free.

The merchandise is not subject to quota restraints or visa requirements.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Lawrence Mushinske at 212-637-7061.
