RE: The tariff classification of a tufted rug from India.

Dear Ms. Mitchell:

In your letter dated February 16, 1998 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a tufted bath rug. The rug is made from 100 percent cotton yarns which have been tufted into a woven base fabric. The oval shaped rug measures 20 x 30 inches. The tufts are sheared on one side of the rug and left as a loop pile on the other.

The applicable subheading for the 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 6.1 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 Section 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.
