RE: The tariff classification of a comforter shell from China.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

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

The submitted sample is a comforter shell. It measures approximately 61 x 79 inches. The shell is made from 100 percent cotton woven fabric and it contains internal baffles. Piping has been inserted into the edge seam. The shell is sewn along three sides with a partial opening on the fourth. After importation the comforter shell will be stuffed and sewn closed. As requested the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the comforter shell will be 6307.90.8985, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles, including dress patterns: other: other: surgical towels; cotton towels of pile or tufted construction; pillow shells, of cotton; shells for quilts, eiderdowns, comforters and similar articles of cotton other: containing 85 percent or more by weight of cotton. The duty rate will be 7 percent ad valorem.

Presently, subheading 6307.90.8985, HTS, is not assigned a textile category designation and items classified therein are not subject to quota or visa requirements.

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.
