RE: The tariff classification of a woven pile rug from India.

Dear Ms. Notidis:

In your letter dated January 7, 1999 you requested a classification ruling.

The instant sample, identified as style Mandy, is a 100 percent cotton hand loomed rug. The rug measures 21 x 31 inches exclusive of a 3 inch knotted fringe formed by the warp yarns. The warp is constructed of cotton yarns. The weft is constructed of yarns and strips of woven fabric. The fabric strips create a pile like effect on the surface of the rug. The rug will also be imported in a 30 x 48 inch size.

The applicable subheading for the rug will be 5702.49.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for carpets and other textile floor coverings, woven, not tufted or flocked, whether or not made up, including "Kelem", "Schumacks", "Karamanie" and similar hand-woven rugs: other, of pile construction, made up: of other textile materials: of cotton... not made on a power-driven loom. The rate of duty will be 2.1 percent ad valorem.

Presently, floor coverings from India classified in subheading 5702.49.1020, HTS, do not require a visa, or exempt certification, and are not subject to quota.

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 212-637-7078.
