Dear Mr. Woodruff :

In your letter dated September 27, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample submitted with the ruling request will be returned to you.

The submitted sample is a Style 1404 pleated rhombus scarf consisting of woven 75% rayon/25% polyester fabric. The scarf is hemmed, pleated and measures approximately 21 inches (53 centimeters) on each side.

The applicable subheading for the Style 1404 pleated rhombus scarf will be 6213.90.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Handkerchiefs: Of other textile materials: man-made fibers.” The rate of duty will be 11.2% ad valorem..

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
