Dear Ms. Albert:

In your letter dated May 17, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of IBS, LLC.

The applicable subheading for the hot pad will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

The item would not be classified under subheading 6304.93.0000, HTS, which provides for other furnishing articles, as it is considered primarily protective, i.e., functional.

The sample will be returned as requested.
