RE: The tariff classification of textile napkin rings from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Andrews:

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

Three napkin rings were submitted. Style 827TL001 is a ribbon which is made up into a bow. At the back of the bow, the ribbon forms a loop to hold the napkin. It has a decorative plastic flower and beaded strings attached to the knot of the bow. You supplied the following information regarding its textile content: The woven ribbon consists of a flocked nylon and polyester blended fabric laminated to a 55 percent nylon and 45 percent metallic fabric. Style 827TL005 consists of three strands of material twisted around a hard plastic ring. Two strands are individually colored red and green loop wale yarns, while the third consists of a strand of gold plastic beads. Styles 827TL021 and 827TL019 are made of metal covered textile yarns which are assembled to resemble gold chains. The "chains" have plastic pearl drops on each end. You state that these two styles differ only in the size of the plastic pearl drop. Your samples will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style 827TL001 will be 6304.93.0000, 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 synthetic fiber. The rate of duty will be 10.1 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for styles 827TL005, 827TL019 and 827TL021 will be 5609.00.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of yarn, strip or the like, ..., twine, cordage, rope or cables, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

Style 827TL001 falls within textile category designation 666. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan 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 Camille Ferraro at 212-

466-5885, or National Import Specialist John Hansen at 212-466-
