RE: The tariff classification of a compressed towel from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Schweinberg:

In your letter dated June 17, 1993 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The instant sample, identified as Gymboree's Style # 215- 70114, is a washcloth. The washcloth is made of 100 percent cotton terry toweling material and measures 13 inches square. The front contains a printed cat design. The washcloth is compressed into a 1-1/2 inch diameter cylindrical shape with a plastic overwrap. It must be placed in water for a short time in order to return to a full size washcloth. As requested in your letter, the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the washcloth will be 6302.60.0030, HTS, which provides for bed linen, table linen, toilet linen and kitchen linen: toilet linen and kitchen linen, of terry toweling or similar terry fabrics, of cotton... towels: other. The rate of duty will be 10.3 percent ad valorem.

The washcloth falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to visa and 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.
