Dear Ms. Benner:

In your letter dated January 5, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a pillowshell. The pillowshell is made from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The yarn dyed fabric has a stripe design. It is comprised of two pieces of fabric sewn together along three sides with an approximately 3-1/4 inch unfinished opening on the fourth side. The shell measures approximately 10-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches. After importation the shell will be stuffed and sewn closed. The shell will be filled with a mixture of rye and wheat.

The applicable tariff provision for the pillowshell will be 6307.90.8945, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for other made up articles, including dress patterns: other: other: surgical towels; cotton towels of pile or tufted construction; pillow shells for quilts, eiderdowns, comforters and similar articles of cotton... pillow shells, of cotton.
