RE: The tariff classification of a woman's upper body garment from India

Dear Ms. Day:

6tIn your letter dated November 11, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Shah Safari, Inc.

The submitted sample, style 1568, is a woman’s upper body garment constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The garment features a smocked bodice and short sleeves, an empire waist with decorative trim and a self-fabric flower at the waist. The front and back necklines are cut straight across from side seam to side seam.

The applicable subheading for style 1568 will be 6211.42.0081, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of cotton: other. The rate of duty will be 8.1 percent ad valorem.

Style 1568 falls within textile category designation 359. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
