RE: The tariff classification of a hat from China.

Dear Mr. Ashear

In your letter dated October 5, 2004 you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, style 2015 is a bucket style ladies hat composed of woven cotton ribbon fabric. You suggest classification under subheading 6505.90.2060. However, this office notes that the hat is constructed of strips of cotton fabric sewn in a circular pattern that radiates from the crown. The hat is more specifically described in heading 6504.

The applicable subheading for the Style BSS03 Ladies’ Hat will be 6504.00.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Hats and other headgear, plaited or made by assembling strips of any material, whether or not lined or trimmed: Of vegetable fibers, of unspun fibrous vegetable materials, of paper yarn or of any combination thereof: Sewed." The rate of duty will be 6% ad valorem.

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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 646-733-3053.
