Attached by means of plastic snaps that are sewn onto textile tabs at the inside of its waistband is an additional liner that is coated by polyurethane.

The applicable subheading for the submitted sample will be 6111.20.6070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted, of cotton, other, other, other, other. The duty rate will be 8.1 percent ad valorem.
