Dear Mr. James:

In your letter dated June 16, 2003, you requested a ruling on behalf of Harris Freeman & Co., of Anaheim, CA, on tariff classification.

You submitted a sample of a mat, approximately 80” x 80”, woven of polypropylene strips; these strips meet the tariff definition of textile. The mat is hemmed on all four sides. In a telephone conversation, you stated that it is used by gardeners to collect grass cuttings and such to carry to a truck or other dumping site.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The general rate of duty will be seven percent ad valorem.
