RE: The tariff classification of a tufted rug from India

Dear Ms. Nelson:

In your letter dated September 4, 1997 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a hand tufted rug that measures approximately 22 x 38 inches. This reversible rug is made by tufting 100 percent cotton yarns into a pre-existing cotton base. The tufts are sheared on one side of the rug and left as a loop pile on the other. The edges of the rug are finished with a fabric binding. The rugs will be imported in the greige and will be dyed and trimmed in the United States. This item will be imported in various sizes with none of them exceeding 30 x 50 inches.

The applicable subheading for the tufted rug will be 5703.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for carpets and other textile floor coverings, tufted, whether or not made up: of other textile materials. The rate of duty will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

Presently, the above subheading is not assigned a textile category designation and as such items classified therein are not subject to quota or visa requirements.

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.
