RE: The tariff classification of a woman's woven skirt and woven laundry bag from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Albert:

In your letter dated June 18, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a skirt and laundry bag. The skirt is designated style XW7086. Your sample is being returned, as you requested.

Style XW7086 is a woman's woven skirt composed of 100% silk fabric with an elasticized waistband. Attached to the skirt by means of a swift tack is the laundry bag and instructions for laundering the garment. The laundry bag is constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric, and is approximately nine inches by seven inches. The bag has a draw string closure.

The skirt and bag meet neither the qualifications for composite nor a set, and are, therefore, considered separate articles, for tariff classification purposes.

The applicable subheading for the skirt will be 6204.59.4040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's skirts, not knit, of silk. The rate of duty will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the laundry bag will be 6307.90.9986, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other made up articles... 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.
