RE: The tariff classification of wall hangings (pictures printed

Dear Ms. Trombley:
In your letter dated June 30, 1992, on behalf of Urban Zebra
Design Inc. (St. Jacques, Quebec, Canada), you requested a tariff
Two samples were submitted and are being returned to you.
Described as wall hangings, they are rectangular sheets of cotton
textile fabric, each of which has been printed on one side with a

said to have been done by a silk-screen process. One sample is
merely the printed fabric, stitched along its perimeter to
prevent unraveling; the other is mounted on a wooden
"stretcher." Each measures about 2 x 2 feet.
The applicable subheading for the above-described printed
pictorial wall hangings, in either format, will be 4911.91.4040,
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which
provides for other (than certain enumerated) printed pictures.
The rate of duty will be 3.1%.
Goods classifiable under subheading 4911.91.4040, HTS, which
have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a
0.6% rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade
Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section
177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry
documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the
documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be
brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the
