Dear Mr. Armani:

In your letter dated September 9, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The belt is approximately 11/16” wide and consists of a 20” length of three rows of wood beads strung together with polyester cord. The beads consist of a middle row of oval dark stained beads and two end rows of small round white beads. Attached to each end of the bead belt is a 1/8” wide imitation leather strip tie which has been folded in two and which has beads at the ends.

The applicable subheading for the wood bead belt will be 4421.90.9740, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for other articles of wood, other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.3 percent ad valorem.
