RE: The tariff classification of a quilt from Indonesia.

Dear Ms. Giang:

In your letter dated July 25, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, referred to as a quilted coverlet, is considered a quilt. The face side of the other shell is made from 100 percent polyester woven fabric. The back is made from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. It is stuffed with a polyester batting. Quilt stitching extends through all three layers. The item will be made in full, queen and king sizes. All of the edges are hemmed.

The applicable subheading for the quilt will be 9404.90.8522, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for mattress supports; articles of bedding and similar furnishing (for example, mattresses, quilts, eiderdowns, cushions, pouffes and pillows) fitted with springs or stuffed or internally fitted with any material or of cellular rubber or plastics, whether or not covered: other: other: other: quilts, eiderdowns, comforters and similar articles with outer shell of man-made fibers.
