RE: The tariff classification of a textile wall hanging from China.

Dear Mr. Klaus:

In your letter dated July 6, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

The item you will be importing, described as a “Embroidered Fabric Art”, is a textile wall hanging. A photograph of item was submitted with your request. The wall hanging will be made from either 100 percent polyester faux suede or 100 percent silk woven fabric. The face of the fabric contains an embroidered design that does not cover the entire surface. The fabric is attached to a wooden frame. Depending on the vendor the frame may or may not have a saw tooth hanger attached to the back.

The applicable subheading for the polyester wall hanging will be 6304.93.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other furnishing articles, excluding those of heading 9404: other: not knitted or crocheted, of synthetic fibers.
