RE: The tariff classification of a needlepoint tapestry from Chile.

Dear Ms. Ames:

In your letter dated April 11, 1995 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a needlepoint tapestry. The tapestry is made of 50 percent acrylic and 50 percent wool yarns and measures approximately 40 x 35 centimeters. It features a country farm scene. This tapestry is made with a cotton ground fabric on which the design is filled in by needle-work using many different colored yarns. The 50 percent wool and 50 percent acrylic yarns completely cover the ground fabric and create a pictorial design. Please note, that even a slight change in the fiber content may result in a change of classification. The tapestry may be subject to U.S. Customs' laboratory analysis at the time of import and if the yarns are other than a 50 percent wool and 50 percent acrylic blend it may be reclassified by Customs at that time. The sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the tapestry will be 5805.00.4010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for hand-woven tapestries of the type Gobelins, Flanders, Aubusson, Beauvais and the like, and neddle- worked tapestries (for example, petit point, cross stitch), whether or not made up: other: other... of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 7.2 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.
