RE: The tariff classification of woven rugs from India.

Dear Ms. Abustan:

In your letter dated August 20, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples, referred to as "Velveteen" and "Chenille Twist", are woven rugs of pile construction. They are made from 100 percent cotton yarns. The rug referred to as "Velveteen" is a beige reversible rug with chenille pile yarns. The edges of the rug are bound with a velveteen fabric. The other rug "Chenille Twist" is wine in color. Rows of chenille pile yarns are inserted in the weft and raised creating a 3 centimeter high twisted pile on the face of the rug.

The applicable subheading for the rug will be 5702.49.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for carpets and other textile floor coverings, woven, not tufted or flocked, whether or not made up, including "Kelem", "Schumacks", "Karamanie" and similar hand-woven rugs: other, of pile construction, made up: of other textile materials: of cotton... not made on a power-driven loom. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.

Presently, floor coverings from India classified in subheading 5702.49.1020, HTS, do not require a visa, or exempt certification, and are not subject to quota.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist John Hansen at 212-466-5854.
