RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s beach robe from the Cambodia.

Dear Ms. Hayd:

In your letter dated October 25, 2005, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s beach robe. The garment will be returned, as requested.

Based on its appearance, as well as the supporting marketing information, the garment is considered a beach robe.

The applicable subheading for style JM5504 will be 6108.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's...bathrobes and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton. The rate of duty will be 8.5% ad valorem.

Style JM5504 falls within textile category designation 350. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
