RE: The tariff classification of fabric ribbon attached to a pewter ornament from China.

Dear Mr. Epstein:

In your letter dated August 24, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted (Item number 17271) consists of a fabric ribbon attached to a pewter ornament. The ribbon measures approximately 19 and 1/2 inches in length. The pewter ornament resembles a scroll and has the word "LOVE" embossed on it and a small cross embossed in the letter L. The ribbon is made in Taiwan of 100 percent polyester fabric. The fabric is sent to China for cutting and sewing and assembly. The final product is a bookmark.

The item is a composite good consisting of a fabric ribbon and a pewter ornament. The pewter ornament imparts the item's essential character.

The applicable subheading for the bookmark of fabric ribbon attached to a pewter ornament will be 8007.00.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other articles of tin: other. The rate of duty will be 3.1% ad valorem.

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 Melvyn Birnbaum at 212-466-5487.
