RE: The tariff classification of a patchwork quilt from China.

Dear Ms. Ehme:

In your letter dated June 2, 1993, on behalf of American Pacific Enterprises Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified in your letter as Style no. APX44A, is a patchwork quilt. The quilt is made of 100 percent cotton woven fabric with a polyester filler. It is ivory and has a multi-colored patchwork interlocking rings design. As stated in your letter the quilt measures 50 inches by 60 inches. The edges of the quilt are scalloped. As requested the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the quilt will be 9404.90.8010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mattress supports; articles of bedding and similar furnishing (for example, mattresses, quilts, eiderdowns, cushions, pouffes and pillows) fitted with springs or stuffed or internally fitted with any material or of cellular rubber or plastics, whether or not covered: other: other: of cotton, not containing any embroidery, lace, braid, edging, trimming, piping exceeding 6.35 mm or applique work. The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

The quilt falls within textile category designation 362. Based upon international trade agreements, products of China are subject to visa and quota.

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.
