RE: The tariff classification of a "chairpad shell" from China.

Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated February 14, 1991, on behalf of Town & Country Linen, New York, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a "chairpad shell" composed of 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton woven fabric and measures approximately 18" X 17" with a 9 1/2" opening at one end. Sewn around three of the sides is a ruffle constructed of the same fabric. Attach to each side of the opening is a textile strap measuring approximately 10 1/2 inches long by 7/16 inches wide. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the "chairpad shell" will be 6307.90.9490, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
