RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s body wrap from China

Dear Mr. Ng:

In your letter dated June 21, 2007 you requested a classification ruling.

     Style T0001-JMT is a woman’s bath body wrap constructed of 80 percent cotton and 20 percent polyester terry knit fabric. The women’s wrap measures 29 by 58 inches and has a Velcro closure on the side of the elasticized waistband. It is designed to cover the body from bodice to approximately knee length. The bottom of the wrap is hemmed.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for style T0001-JMT will be 6108.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’s or girls’ slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Other: Of cotton: Other: Women’s. The duty rate will be 8.5% ad valorem.

Style T0001-JMT falls within textile category 350.

To obtain the most current information on quota and visa requirements applicable to this merchandise, we suggest you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” which is available on our web site at www.cbp.gov. For current information regarding possible textile safeguard actions on goods from China and related issues, we refer you to the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel of the Department of Commerce at otexa.ita.doc.gov.
