RE: The tariff classification of a napkin from Brazil.

Dear Mr. Clune:

In your letter dated September 29, 1993, on behalf of Silver Rain Inc. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified in your letter as Style no. GD1070/2, is a white napkin. The napkin is made of a woven blend of 66 percent cotton, 29 percent ramie, and 5 percent rayon fabric. It measures 16-1/2 inches square. All four edges are hemmed and one corner contains embroidery and lace. As requested the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the napkin will be 6302.51.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for bed linen, table linen, toilet linen and kitchen linen: other table linen: of cotton: tablecloths and napkins: other: plain woven. The rate of duty is 5.5 percent ad valorem.

The napkin falls within textile category designation 361. Based upon international trade agreements, products of Brazil 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.
