RE: The tariff classification a pillow sham/cover from China.

Dear Ms. Cumins:

In your letter dated September 7, 1990, on behalf of Polo, Ralph Lauren Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample style #4962-60 (4958-5) is a pillow sham/cover made of 100% cotton knit fabric. This pillow sham/cover is a white color, has a cable and diamond motif, a zipper closure at one end and it measures approximately 18 3/8 inches by 19 15/16 inches. The sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the pillow sham/cover will be 6304.91.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furnishing articles, excluding those of heading 9404: other: knitted or crocheted ... of cotton. The rate of duty will be 11.5 percent ad valorem.

The pillow sham/cover falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to visa and quota requirements.

The designated textile and apparel category 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.
