RE: The tariff classification of an embroidered wall hanging from Burma (Myanmar) and Thailand.

Dear Mr. Offin:

In your letter dated April 21, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, which you refer to as an embroidered tapestry, is an embroidered wall hanging made from a 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The hanging measures approximately 25 inches square and has a rod pocket along the top which will allow the item to be hung. The hanging is not considered a tapestry for tariff purposes since the design was neither created during the weaving nor created by needlepoint. The hanging contains an embroidered design which may depict animals or human figures. The designs are made with various colored cotton, metallic and wool threads and includes sequins, small metal disks, glass beads and imitation pearls. Applique work is also incorporated in the design.

The applicable subheading for the wall hanging will be 6304.92.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furnishing articles, excluding those of heading 9404: other: not knitted or crocheted, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

The wall hanging falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international trade agreements, products of Thailand are subject to visa requirements. Currently, products of Burma (Myanmar) that fall within textile category 369 are not subject to visa or quota requirements.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels),an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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.
