Your correspondence indicates that this fabric will be used in the construction of suits and has been designed for use as part of a lapel.

The applicable subheading for the silk woven fabric will be 5007.20.0065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of silk or of silk waste, other fabrics, containing 85 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste other than noil silk, other, other, not jacquard woven, more than 127 cm in width. The rate of duty will be free.

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