RE: The tariff classification of a scarf and headband assortment from China.

Dear Ms. Trotta:

In your letter dated May 21, 2007, you requested a classification ruling. The samples will be returned.

The submitted sample is called a “Model #46889 5 Piece Assortment Scarf Band.” The assortment consists of three scarves and two headbands. The scarves are constructed of woven 100% polyester fabric and measure approximately 50 x 5 inches. The headbands are constructed of rigid plastic and have numerous cutout holes through which the scarves can be threaded. The three scarves are inter- changeable with the two headbands. The packaging states “together or alone create your own,” and pictures a model wearing the scarf/headband combination, or wearing only the scarf as a headband, ponytail holder or around the neck.

The applicable subheading for the Model #46889 Scarves will be 6214.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Shawls, scarves, mufflers, mantillas, veils and the like: Of synthetic fibers.” The duty rate will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
