RE: The tariff classification of a duvet cover from Malaysia.

Dear Ms. Beltran:

In your letter dated January 5, 1995, on behalf of Springs Industries you requested a classification ruling.

A duvet cover was submitted to this office. The cover will be made of 100 percent cotton woven fabric. It measures approximately 207 centimeters by 220 centimeters. Three edges are sewn while the fourth has a 164 centimeter opening. The opening has a 5 button closure. The upper portion of the cover is blue with a pieced pacthwork design made from woven yarn dyed fabrics. The back portion is solid white.

The applicable subheading for the duvet cover will be 6302.31.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for bed linen, table linen, toilet linen and kitchen linen: other bed linen: of cotton: other: not napped... other. The duty rate will be 7.5 percent ad valorem.

The comforter cover falls within textile category designation 362. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Thailand are subject visa 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.
