Dear Mr. Clarke:

In your letter dated March 28, 2007, on behalf of the importer, Lewis Hyman Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample of the product to be classified, a reed roll-up blind, was submitted. The sample consists of a 36” x 72” finished blind made of natural whole reeds. The reeds are 2 mm to 5 mm in diameter and have nodes intact. Whole reeds are not considered to be in a form suitable for plaiting. The reeds are placed side by side and woven together with yarn. The blind includes a bamboo top rail, a bamboo bottom rail, two textile pull cords and metal hardware.

The applicable subheading for the reed roll-up blind will be 4421.90.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of wood: wood blinds, shutters, screens and shades, all the foregoing with or without their hardware, other. The rate of duty will be 5.1 percent ad valorem.
