Three sides of the comforter contain a piping cord that does not exceed 4 millimeters in width. The will be imported in four sizes that include twin (style no. 2W533301GY), full (style no. 2W533302GY), queen (style no. 2W533303GY) and king (style no. 2W533304GY).

The applicable subheading for the comforter will be 9404.90.8020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mattress supports; articles of bedding and similar furnishing (for example, mattresses, quilts, eiderdowns, cushions, pouffes and pillows) fitted with springs or stuffed or internally fitted with any material or of cellular rubber or plastics, whether or not covered: other: of cotton, not containing any embroidery, lace, braid, edging, trimming, piping exceeding 6.35 mm or applique work quilts, eiderdowns, comforters and similar articles.
