The finished articles have no backings or borders. The placemats measure approximately 13” x 19” and the table runners measure approximately 14” x 72”.

The applicable subheading for the bamboo placemats (SKU # 2218627) and table runners (SKU # 2244588), described above, will be 4601.21.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for: Plaiting materials, plaits and similar products of plaiting materials, bound together in parallel strands or woven, in sheet form, whether or not being finished articles (for example mats, matting, screens): Mats, matting and screens of vegetable materials: Of bamboo: Other: Other.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
