RE: The tariff classification of fabric wall hangings from China.

Dear Ms. Pearson:

In your letter dated February 16, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

You have submitted three samples of banner wall hangings. All of the wall hangings have wood dowels inserted at the top and bottom. A gold cord is attached to the top dowel for hanging. The banners are composed of 90 percent acrylic and 10 percent wood. Each banner measures 18” long by 8.5” wide.

Item #62746 is a textile wall hanging banner. The decorations on the banner consists of the words “Felices Fiesta” and the picture of a pinata.

Item #62745 is a textile wall hanging banner with the words “Prospero Ano Nuevo” (Happy New Year) and a picture of a sky rocket and stars.

Item #62632 is a textile wall hanging banner with the words “Feliz Navidad” and the picture is the silhouette of Bethlehem.

The applicable subheading for item #62746 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 fibers. The duty rate will be 9.8 percent ad valorem.
