RE: The tariff classification of a scarf from Ghana.

Dear Ms. Duncan:

In your letter dated December 15, 1989, on behalf of Morehouse School of Medicine, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

One sample was submitted. The article is a "Kente" stripe scarf measuring approximately four inches wide and fifty six inches long. The scarf is made of woven fabric that is 60% cotton and 40% silk fibers. It has fringe at both ends.

The applicable subheading for the scarf will be 6214.90.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for shawls, scarves, mufflers, mantillas, veils and the like: of other textiles materials' of cotton. The rate of duty will be 12 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.
