RE: The tariff classification of applique letters from China.

Dear Mr. Andrews:

In your letter dated October 27, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The samples are being returned as requested.

The samples submitted are style numbers 5070A and 5070B. Both styles are constructed of 100 percent polyester nonwoven fabric designed into the letter "B". The letter "B" is filled in with embroidery threads. The letter is attached onto a felt fabric measuring approximately 2 3/4" x 2". The difference in the styles is, style number 5070B has a strip similar to the VELCRO loop brand fastener attached onto the back. The articles are intended to be used on Bath & Body Works' bags as decorations.

The applicable subheading for style number 5070B will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for style number 5070 will be 5810.92.1000, HTS, which provides for embroidery in the piece, in strips or in motifs: Other embroidery: Of man-made fibers: Badges, emblems and motifs. The rate of duty will be 7.1 percent ad valorem.

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