RE: The tariff classification of a rug from India.

Dear Ms. Notidis:

In your letter dated March 2, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified as “Daytona Woven Rugs”, is a hand loomed woven rug of pile construction. The rug is made from 100 percent cotton yarns. It measures 22 x 38 inches exclusive of a 3 inch knotted fringe formed by the warp yarns. The rug features a raised loop surface.

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 constructions, 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.
