RE: The tariff classification of a wallhanging from China.

Dear Mr. Andrews:

In your letter dated November 14, 1997 you requested a classification ruling.

Style number 5099 is a textile wallhanging. The wallhangings outershell is made from 100 percent cotton woven flannel fabric. It is filled with polyester fiber and measures 5 x 9-1/2 inches. The top portion is decorated with three insect appliques and an embroidered phrase which reads "Don't Bug Me". The edges are finished with a lace trim. Sewn onto each corner of the top portion of the wallhanging are self fabric tabs. A fabric ribbon is threaded through these tabs creating a loop used to hang the item from a wall. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the wallhanging will be 6304.92.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furnishing articles, excluding those of heading 9404: other: not knitted or crocheted, of cotton. The duty rate will be 6.9 percent ad valorem. The duty rate for 1998 will be 6.8 percent ad valorem.

The wallhanging falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. 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 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.
