The skirt has a 15-inch drop and is attached to three sides of the platform section. The platform section is placed between the mattress and the mattress support while the skirt hangs from the side of the bed.     

 The applicable subheading for the bed skirt will be 6303.92.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) that provides for curtains (including drapes) and interior blinds; curtain or bed valances: other: of synthetic fibers: other: other.
