RE: The tariff classification of leg-warmers from China

Dear Ms. Wallertz:

In your letter dated January 14, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style/Item #S02-06-032, is identified by you as a pair of women’s leg warmers, which you state are made of a 100% cotton knit textile material. The leg-warmer is of a tubular knit construction and is designed to cover a part of the wearer’s leg but not the foot.

The applicable subheading for this item, identified as Style/Item #S02-06-032, will be 6406.99.1550, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for gaiters, leggings and similar articles of textile materials, which are leg-warmers of cotton. The rate of duty will be 15.3% ad valorem.

This “leg-warmer” falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are no longer subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

We are returning the sample as you requested.

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 Richard Foley at 646-733-3042.
