RE: The tariff classification of baby bottle holders from South Korea

Dear Ms. Poorman:

In your letter dated February 20, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples are two items that you identify as “Snuggis.” You state that they are baby bottle covers that fit over the bottom of the bottle. The covers measure approximately 3½”W x 5½”H and are constructed of knit textile fabric that is 65% cotton, 25% nylon, 10% spandex. The samples are decorated with NFL trademarks for the Chicago Bears (“Bears” and the stylized “C”) and “#1 Fan.”

The applicable subheading for the knit baby bottle holders will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7% ad valorem.
