RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knitted garment from India.

Dear Ms. Julia:

In your letter dated April 5, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

Following are description(s) of the sample(s) that you have submitted and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) provision(s) that apply.

Style Number: S06-98-116
Garment Description: A sleeveless pullover with a textile bow and detachable beads giving the appearance of a necklace. Textile loops at the top of the shoulderclasp on both sides to attach to the loops. The garment has a U-shaped neckline in front and is constructed from 100% cotton knit fabric.

The beads and pullover are sold together at retail as a unit. They are adapted to each other, are mutually complementary and together form a whole that would not normally be offered for sale in separate parts. As such, they meet the definition of a composite good found in the Explanatory Notes to the General Rules of Interpretation, 3(b). The essential character of Style S06-98-116 is imparted by the pullover. HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 3 Stitch Count: The fabric of the pullover measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. HTSUS Number: 6110.20.2079
Textile Category Number: 339
Component Construction: The garment is cut and sewn.

To view the tariff language and current duty rates that correspond to these HTSUS provisions, please refer to the text of the most recent HTSUS, which is available on the World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
