RE: The tariff classification of a pillow cover from Pakistan.

Dear Mr. Butt:

In your letter dated July 1, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a pillow cover. The cover is made from two pieces of woven fabric sewn along the edges. You have indicated that the base fabric is made from 61 percent cotton and 39 percent polyester. The front panel is fully embroidered and features small mirrored glass disks. The back is a solid color and it features a zipper that will allow the insertion of a pillow. The cover measures approximately 14.5 inches. You indicate in your letter that you will also import a wallhanging made from the same embroidered fabric as the pillow cover.

The applicable subheading for the submitted pillow cover and the wall hanging will be 6304.92.0000, 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 cotton. The duty rate will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

The pillow cover and wall hanging fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Pakistan are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 646-733-3043.
